The Top 3 Reasons to Do High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)

By
CATEGORIES:
Podcast

If you want to lose fat and not muscle, speed up your metabolism, and improve your conditioning, then you want to do high-intensity interval training.

If your goal is to get or stay lean and maintain your cardiovascular health, you don’t have to grind out a single long session of grueling cardio.

Ever.

That’s right…

  • No boring jogs.
  • No droning away on one of the hamster wheels in the gym.
  • No sacrificing hours and hours every week.

In fact, if you know what you’re doing (and you will by the end of this episode), you can get a lot more out of doing a lot less cardio than you think.

If you know what you’re doing with your diet, you don’t need to exercise more than 4 to 6 hours per week to get as lean as you’d like.

Yup, just 3 to 5 hours of weightlifting and 1 to 2 hours of cardio per week is more than enough.

So, in this episode, I’m going to explain 5 reasons why high-interval intensity training is my cardio of choice and almost a bit of a “secret weapon” for getting and staying lean.
