View Full Version : HIIT - Need quick answer

02-26-2004, 03:10 PM
Hey, I'm gonna do it soon with my friends so yea..

quick question:

What interval should I use and how many? The article on here said 6sec work / 9 sec rest but for how long? 10 intervals? 20? 100? Also, I don't care about fitness or anything - I want maximum fatloss. I'm thinking maybe 12 work / 18 rest? It says not to go over 15 work - and 6 jus seems a bit too low. And also, how many intervals? Like assuming I do 12 and 18 how many times to I repeat???

Re-read that thread. The question you ask is answered there.

There is no rule. Personally, I'd suggest starting at 20-30 seconds and performing active rest for about 1-2 minutes. Repeat this 6-8 times, or 12-18 minutes.

I'm gonna do 15 work / 45 rest for 10 sets... I think it'll work well

It will. Also, as your cardio gets better I think it's probably best to increase the number of sprints as opposed to lowering the rest periods.
