    Trainer I agree. It’s called going at 90% because your trying to exhaust the muscle/fibers. The CP energy system only allow 10-15sec of energy. If you are going for longer then you aren’t hitting that energy system!

    There are so many opinions on the “Best” workout to do to see the best results. It’s hard to know what to listen to and what to do. I have basically tried it all and I definitely see and feel the best when I am doing HIIT workouts. Thanks for the post!

    Good information. Hard cardio exercises are the only way to go if you want to get super lean and show off those honed abdominal muscles.

    I am concerned about the effects on my CNS, because I am also in training to gain strength. I am currently on Wendler’s 5/3/1 strength program and I want to add in a cardio/ fat burning workout on my off days (Tuesday & Thursday). The strength program itself is very taxing, being that the reps are low and the weight is high. I am afraid that I will run down my CNS if i add in HIIT training, but i dont want to be so out of shape and cant even run a mile. Is there a way that I can find a happy medium with my strength and conditioning (greater strength AND Vo2Max)… I want to be mighty strong as possible, but also be well conditioned and not extremely fat like some guys I see on world strongest man competitions. Please offer some advice, thank you

    Thanks for the blog Rusty. Im wondering if doing 30 mins of HIIT can be constituted as being a true HIIT workout. Being relatively new to it I find 15mins of 30s sprint at about 80-90% and 1min rest (8intervals) a struggle. I dont’t have mad popping muscles and was never the athlete type but I enjoy working out. 15mins of HIIT is ideal but also a killer workout leaving me looking silly gasping for huge mouthfuls of air.
    Oh yeah…one more thing. Do you think Usain Bolt could do HIIT at 100% for 30 mins?

    Great workout.
    In order to increase my stamina before tough trainings I am taking nutritional supplement – Navy Seal Formula. It gives me intense boost of energy and really improves my workouts. Natural compounds, like Siberian Ginseng, Ginko Biloba make it safe to take in a long run. I would definitely recommend this product.

    Here’s a program I use in my martial arts class. 30 sec. Bodyweight exercise followed by a 30 sec. active rest jumping jacks, light run or some type of footwork). This is a 16 minute workout. Starting with an upper body exercise. Then a lower body exercise and then an an exercise. Then we repeat that sequence for 16 minutes. After two weeks we we add five seconds to the work portion. Two weeks later we do the same thing, and then add five more seconds again. By the sixth week you’re doing 45 sec. of work and 15 sec. of active rest. At the two month mark we change exercises and start all over. We do a light warm up and stretch first and end the workout with a slightly more involved stretching routine. Makes for a total of about 25-27 minute workout.

    Hi Rusty,
    I was wondering if cardio kickboxing has the same effects as a HIIT workout. Depleting glycogen.
