why is HIIT training effective for burning bodyfat? :thumbup:

It depends on the type of HIIT training. Some of the possible reasons are:
1. Calories used both during the session and after it is complete through increased metabolism + repair
2. Free fatty acid oxidation during recovery intervals
3. AMKP activation during high intensity exercise and related lipid metabolism adaptations
4. Increased fat as fuel due to depleted glycogen reserves
5. Hormonal changes
6. Appetite suppression (increased less than predicted by calorie usage)
