    On an HIIT program adapted to the stair stepper, holding 10 lb plates in each hand i lost about 12% body fat in around 14 weeks. Keep in mind this is only 20 minutes 4x a week, accompanied by hard lifting and clean eating though.

    High Intensity Interval Training. it's basically cardio in bursts. eg 30 seconds (light) jog then 30 seconds full sprint, jog, sprint, repeat.

    Spin class kicked my ass into shape. Plus I was forced to do it because no way I was getting up in the middle of class and walking out. Any other cardio I can talk myself out of in a heartbeat.

    Are you saying 15 seconds of hard work then 45 seconds of rest or the opposite?

    1:3 = work:rest = sprint:jog

    So it would be 15 of sprinting, 45 of jogging.

    I play at least 45 minutes of hard Squash everyday of the week. I have lost about nine pounds or so in around a month.

    I was about 199 at 6'0" now I am around 190. I am just trying to get back down to around 175 or 180 again after gaining some weight from work.

    The best cardio for weight loss is a VARIETY of different types of cardio. 2 HIIT sessions a week + 1 long endurance session FTW.
