    when people talk about the physiqs of marathon runners versus sprinters,its a bit unfair firstly most sprinters lift weights,distance runners dont want muscle as it would slow them down carrying it over a long distance,also you can do ss-cardio without going crazy ie 10 15 mile runs,doing 1hr of ss isnt going to make you a skinny guy,and also remember most sprinters only do about 25% of there training at a high intensity the other 75% is med to low intensity,you really cant do HIIT everyday so use a bit of both.

    This HIIT workout method is very interesting, it's caught my interest. I may have to try it out to see how well it works for me. Thanks for the introduction.

    Yep....just a simply interval with mixed times and maybe an increase in speed level or incline. Thats not real HIIT people...

    Real HIIT is INTENSE...real HIIT makes you want to barf, pass out, or lie down. Real HIIT tests you..every session...
    Hey there,
    So I guess I was using classic interval session then? I use one of the treadmill's labeled "interval"...wasn't sure if it was HIIT or not. Walk-run-sprint starts off slow then builds up the speed. My left shin starts hurting if I pound on it too hard (running) so I won't sprinttoo much, lol.

    I just started to do HIIT.

    I do it on an elliptical trainer, so when i go to sprint I should crank up the resistance so that I will only last around 1 minute right? Then jog for 2 minutes and sprint again.

    I do this for about 20 minutes right? That was the time that I read on this thread.

    Just checking :P

    I really like this idea, Is this similar to doing super sets with weights?

    Wouldn't it be better to express this in heart-rate (vMax) percentages?

    It important to remember when performing a HiiT session that you have your heart rate zones set up correctly. I read this for HiiT training the other day and thought I'd share it with the forum.

    If you need to know how to set up your HR training zones, this is a
