I'm trying to loose my stomach flab while still maintaining my linear gains in my core lifts, and solid state cardio 2-3 times a week on the treadmill is just not cutting it

i was wondering who here does HIIT? if so, does it wear you out so much you can squat the next day or deadlift?

how is it? and what interval do you use?

You can find out what it is by a simple google search:

I have heard it takes some time to recover from.

HITT is not conducive to powerlifting in it's pure form.

You might have better success with upping your GPP work and cleaning up your diet.

why not just reduce your caloric intake by another 2-300?

i know what HIIT is, im asking for opinions from people that powerlift like myself and do HIIT as well....as it seems it would be very hard to do both properly

Carb cycling is your friend. It's the best way to do lose fat and maintain strength.

Abs are made in the kitchen... if you're serious about your powerlifting, skip HIIT and get your diet under control

maybe i will just stick to steady state cardio and try to eat less carbs...because my diet is pretty clean, low in sat. fat and whatnot

If you have a clean diet, then your calories need to be adjusted.

:withstupi:

and a diet low in saturated fat is not necessarily a good thing.
