HIIT

currently 190 pounds 6"0, bf about 18%

Do you think that by doing HIIT twice a week I will lose any muscle (considering my protein intake is about 300 gms daily)?

    Depends on what you do and what your routine looks like.
    HIIT can be very beneficial to fat loss and limit muscle loss. Any large amounts of cardio may cause a little muscle loss.

    What routine are you currently on? Bulking, cutting? What HIIT do you plan on doing and how much ie. time wise, interval wise?

    Are you doing this outside? You must be bloody fit to do a 20 min session.

    I would cut down teh moderate/slow pace to 30 seconds, which will probably take you 10 mins before you are pooped. I do HIIt on a bike and rowing machine for around 7.5mins with 30 seconds at 100% or as close to that as possible, and tehn 30 seconds at slow...

    What is 40min fat burn mate? is that aerobics?

    ironhead, this is wrong. bob had it spot on the first time.

    bob, do exactly what you've been doing only up it to 3 times a week. you shouldn't lose any real muscle mate. and get rid of those "fat burn" sessions, instead do 1 active recovery swimm, very low pace for around 15-20mins.

    Oh Sh!t, sorry mate! Well you learn something new...

    Robert, So is it not worth doing the 30 seconds slow/ 30 sesonds fast thing then? It feels pretty taxing when I do it on the bike and rowing machine. What do you think is the best thing to do on a bike or rower please? Cheers.

    in my experince, it is best [and bear in mind it is irrelevant if you are running, skipping or anything else as its the same principle for all]

    i would start a begginner off with:

    10-20sec MHR, followed by 1-2min 40-50%MHR depending on fitness level obviously....repeat for as long as possible until you can manage a toal of 20minutes

    when you can, i would gun for something more adventurous like:

    20-40secMHR followed by 2-3mins 40-50%MHR

    and then [just to boast], when you reach my standard you can do this:

    1minMHR 4min 40-50%MHR. my record for this is 11minutes

    ok great...so i will change my rowing/biking to the 20-40 seconds MHR and then 2-3 mins half MHR and see how that goes for 20 mins. err...i will get to 1 min MHR probably next year!!!

    Cheers Robert.

    Cheers robert youre advise has been really usefull,ive just started doing the first stage of HIIT on the heavy bag and with running and im feeling it in my lungs like ive never before.

    Just a quick question..i can only manage 20 secs at MHR running- when im on the 50% MHR would it make a difference if i powerwalked untill im fit enough and light enough to run slow for 1-2 mins?
