The Ultimate 8-Week HIIT For Fat-Burning Program
Vital Stats Name: Jim Stoppani, PhD Occupation: Creator of JYM Supplement Science, fitness coach and consultant Website: www.jimstoppani.com/ As far as cardio training goes, high-intensity interval training, aka HIIT, has been exactly that among serious fitness enthusiasts—a big "hit." HIIT has nothing to do with becoming a Mafia assassin, although your body fat may feel like you finally have it in the crosshairs. This form of cardio intersperses intervals of high-intensity exercise (such as sprinting) with intervals of either low-intensity exercise (such as walking at a slow pace) or complete rest. This style is a departure from continuous steady-state (slow and steady) cardio that most people do at a moderate intensity for 30-60 minutes. With HIIT, you'll be running (or cycling or whatever) like a bat out of hell for brief stretches, but the net effect when all's said and done is better results in less time. HIIT was developed decades ago by track coaches to better prepare runners. Dr.
