The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Your HIIT results?

    everybody on the forum (well, most) seem to preach the HIIT cardio training method for fat loss, so im a little curious as to what results it has yielded for you all, if you could answer the following, it would be much apreciated

    pre-HIIT bodyweight & bf%:
    post-HIIT bodyweight & bf%:
    intervals you used/frequency: eg. 15sec sprint/40sec walk (20 times), 3x a week
    daily calorie intake:
    how many weeks did you use HIIT in this timeframe:
    For every $1 you donate to the "buy Lude more weight plates foundation", you will help add 1kg to my 1RM.

    er i change my HIIT intervals quite often and i don't measure my pre and post bodyweight and bf% so.. sorry i can't help you here. you can see what i've been doing in my journal and i've been doing HIIT for about 6-7 months now i think. i quite like it and i think i got the most results (melting of bodyfat) from it.

    No measurements either, but my RHR went down 25%

    Fat ripped off at first, but afterwards started to plateu, even though my performance was advancing

    My HIIT

    30 minutes long

    Intervals of 1 minute

    Alternating between 20kph and 10kph




    Sometimes i bring the top speed down, maybe do a few more intervals




    Best results are doing this maybe every 5-8 days IMO

    I started doing it every 2nd day, and became overtrained (but did not realise it for a long time)

    iLUDEd, I don't think anyone is going to be able to answer your question. You're treating HIIT like it's some kind of program, like HST, 5 x 5, Max-OT, etc.

    I think most people that do HIIT do it year-round, not just while cutting.

    maybe i should have re-worded the question, just trying to get a general feel on what kind of results people get from using HIIT, as i've seen a heap of threads about HIIT saying how good it works, i didnt see many posts on what kind of results (stat wise; bf% loss) it gave them.

    That's my point though. I use HIIT while I'm cutting OR bulking, and I see no reason not to; the HIIT itself has NOTHING to do with my physique, it all depends on diet. Sure, HIIT can be very useful on a cut, but I don't think it's possible to determine how much bodyfat loss can be directly attributed to the cardio itself.

    lol, thats why i asked for their calorie intake

    maybe i should google it and see if there are any studies online somewhere that use 2 groups, same calorie deficit/surplus, but one group using regular cardio, and another using HIIT cardio.

    interesting study! there are some parts i don't understand though:

    "25 continuous sessions; half completed before week 5
    Week 5-20: 19 long & 16 short interval sessions"

    continuous sessions meaning long intervals followed by short intervals?

    25 sessions half completed before week 5 meaning about 13 sessions in 5 weeks?

    HRR is maximum heart rate?

    "60% of max output in 10 seconds & 70% of max output in 90 seconds; increasing 5% every 3 weeks"

    what does this max output in X seconds mean? the length of the interval or the time it took them to reach that speed?
