Hi I noticed in the HIIT rountine it doesnt specify how long to run and how long to walk for. If I have been jogging about 5 miles 4 times a week how should my intervals be? FOR EXAMPLE: 30 sec jog 4 min run

There are lots of different protocols you could try.

I like to do 30 seconds flat-out sprinting/30 seconds walking, but I'm sure others will pipe in with suggestions.

I do it on the treadmill. I just try to kick my a$$ each sprint part, I do it at max on the machine (approx. 12 mph) for as long as I can then I take it down to either a fast pace walk or slow pace jog. Then when I feel the energy build up and my heartbeat go down a little (.45-1.15 minutes) I max it out again for as long as I can go. I do that for 20-30 minutes typically. It's a pretty raw routine and I will only do it while cutting.
