    HIIT doesn't just have to be running.

    We do routines of things like 3 minutes of alternating dumbell bench press, one arm rows & pullovers - sets of 10 - get in as many as you can, then 1.5 minutes of skipping, 1.5 minutes of star jumps, 1.5 minutes of jumping squats (not holding any weight) then 1.5 minutes of pushup thrusters, 1.5 minutes of pushup star jumps, 1.5 minutes of mountain climbers - all with short interval rests of like 10-15 seconds between, and i can tell you im totally buggered after that. Then a 3 minute rest and repeat x 2.

    At the end you will be completely cardio'ed out.
    Powered by food, raw ambition, and an awesome woman.

    I don't have much to burn off, missing one meal I'll drop a pound easy. Cardio just eats me up unless I am running moderate to heavy doses of gear.

    time variations change but I always either jog..then sprint or run...then sprint

    example: speed at 6.5 then bump up to 9.5 and higher...I never go from a sprint to walking...to much of a difference

    I do 5 min warm up, 30 second sprints, 90 second moderate pace. I do 10 intervals that way. HIIT does not burn muscle bro. Steady state is when you start losing muscle.

    I skip rope and like to do it first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.
    10 min warmup
    14 mins HIIT - 20 seconds sprinting 40 seconds bounce jump or rest
    look up Tabata Protocol
    Na am always worried going to lose muscle size running hard..
    Look at the difference between a sprinter and a marathon runner. Sprinters train with short bursts of intensity.

    I do mine on elliptical. 5 min warm up, 60 second moderate, 30 seconds balls to the wall, repeat 10-12 times, 5 min cooldown.
