I really like my HIIT on the bike, so when i get to the max effort section i set the resistance to max (rather than only increasing pedal speed) The extra strength requirement really intensifies things.

My timeline: 45 seconds low pace, 15 seconds max effort. Generally 15 cycles (15minutes not including warmup/cooldown)

Don't forget metabolic circuits with plyometrics!

Read a magazine article when Stoppani says to do HIIT after lifting and Harry Rambody or whatever the **** his name is says to do it first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Typical bodybuilding chaos. No wonder they all go and obsess over detail.

I hate HIIT. I tried it last year, and found myself ready to die after only a few sets. Although, I'll say everyone I know has said it's the greatest thing. I think I'm going to try Shao's pyramid technique on the bike during my next cut...

I know, I know...I read that without that feeling, it's not real HIIT. I'll do it again, mixed with my other arch-nemesis...running.. I'm trying to break a 6 minute mile this year..big slow guy hates running..

I like to do mine on stairs or like the step arobic thingys. I do a minute of up down up down up down then rest for 30 seconds, repeat that 4 or 5 times depending and then do 30 second intervals with 60 seconds rest for 4 or 5 times. Then I hit the punching bag for about 10mins straight. lol which is great!!! I'll also set up a circut of pyometrics sometimes. I'll alternate between burpees, running in place, jump rope, and weighted jump lunges. I know I don't do "traditional" HIIT, but it seems to work for me and I enjoy pyometrics a whole hell of a lot more than running!! lol


Or... I just do my dance cardio and consider that good... lol
