    I am going to start doing HIIT again because I did it before and it worked great (lost about 3-4lbs per week). But what I was wondering was whether or not thsi could be done on say a stair stepper or on a bicycle. I have both of those AND a treadmill and was wondering if I would still be able to see the same results that I did before I quit it?

    Any help will be appreciated
    Thanks

    You can't really do HIIT on a treadmill, you can do intervals on a bicycle or elliptical but I don't know about the stair stepper.

    Why not just do 20-30 minutes of steady state cardio a day? I personally don't believe in HIIT and don't know anyone who has used it successfully.

    You lost 3-4 lbs per week ?
    If you want to lose weight HIIT isn't the best idea because it tends to eat lots of lean mass since it relies mainly on glycogen stores which are already low when dieting, especially if you're on a low-carb diet or if you want to lower cals while maintaining high protein intake.
