Re:How to HIIT on Cross Trainer for Fat Loss?
everyone is different and its a case of trial n error to see what gives you the best results, i like to do my HIIT after weight sessions at 30mins 3 times a week and i do 2 other cardio sessions for an hour at low intensity on non training days first thing on an empty stomach.
I dont feel its that important to have protein inbetween your weights and HIIT session, just get it all done then have your protein/simple carb recovery drink afterwards.
This is how i like to do my HIIT cardio : 2 mins medium (HR 130-150) 1 min high (HR 160+) 2 mins low (HR 115-130) and repeat. I find these 5 min blocks help the session to pass quicker and stop boredom and its not too harsh on recovery after a tough weights session.
