    Hiit

    What is a good setup or whatever for HIIT? Im wanting to keep the bodyfat at the minimum and keep the muscle gains at the maximum while on SS. Would a cycle of a 5 min warmup, 30 second sprint, 90 second walk, work? How many times should I cycle through the sprint and walk?

    Its generally a 1:2 ratio. 30 sec sprint and 60 sec recovery OR 20 sec sprint 40 sec recovery. 8-12 reps

    Follow that with 15-20 min SS cardio.
