    I tried looking for some High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) routines but all I find are articles about how great they are icon_neutral.gif

    Do you guys have any suggestions/resources of some good HIIT routines?

    I actually went to bodybuilding.com and that was the site talking about how amazing it was but didn't give any suggested routines. I'll try looking again, thanks.

    I would try searching on it, or use your own method. HIIT is not rocket science. There are gazillion articles on it.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High-intensity_interval_training

    A good heart rate monitor is a great investment for HIIT. You can use it as your guide along with a stop watch on your intervals.

    This is not a hard thing, and.........it is highly effective.

    There are simple things explained in the various articles on bodybuilding.com.

    I love Insanity. Am on day 35 and am having some great results. I ran my first 5k since starting it and beat my time by 10 minutes. Of course I was a slow runner prior to this, but my legs and core are a lot stronger and now I am starting to burn off the rest of the fat.

    Unless you're trying to get lean it doesn't look like you need it. P90x may be better

    You can do HIIT with any form of cardio that you enjoy. Swimming, treadmill, running, exercise bike, cross trainer, rowing machine, cycling etc. Possibilities are endless.

    I do HIIT by way of running. Once a week I do each of the following:

    Ten minute warm up at 60% of max. heart rate
    Thirty minutes of one minute intervals alternating between 60 and 80%
    Fifteen minute cool down at 60%

    And

    Ten minute warm up at 60% of max. heart rate
    Thirty minutes of intervals: two minutes at 80%, one minute at 60%
    Fifteen minute cool down at 60%

    jog for 10 minutes, sprint for 60- 90 seconds, jog for 1- 2 minutes, sprint for 60- 90 seconds, jog for 1- 2 minutes. Repeat for 30 minutes.

    a swimming routine i created was to swim laps for 20 minutes, sprint swim for 5 minutes, then do a 5 minute cool down.

    this is a great cardio routine that will burn fat FAST

    As I mentioned, high intensity steady state will not only burn more fat during the workout, its EPOC and associated metabolic effects are greater. However, HISS is not for most being particularly grueling.


    Not sure if I could swim at my highest intensity for 45 minutes non stop, without drowning. But I'm not an Olympian either.

    Isn't HISSing for drag queens??

    Body for Life's routine has always worked the best for me. After doing this, I found out I could run 10 miles like it was a slow walk on the beach. Quite a nice shock.
