    With diet in check, is HIIT, in your opinion, one of the best ways to burn fat quickly?

    I think weightlifting is much better for fat burning.

    thats the way I always understood it. during higher intesity work you burn more glycogen compared with the slow cardio where you burn fat. Then when you are done HIITing you burn more fat the rest of the day.

    Do you want to reach your physique goals? Do you really want to achieve what most people either can't or won't?

    Then you better get ready to burn.

    the answer is both. resistance training coupled with HIIT is the way to go to really burning fat all day every day.

    that and proper diet of course.

    thank you... for most effective weight loss, don't do the same thing every day... of coarse a healthy diet,
    cycling your workouts and eating alot better, you should get your results fairly quickly, if not your not doing something right.

    If you're doing HIIT training properly, it'd be damn near impossible to do it everyday. Alot of people say to keep it down to 1-2 times a week.

    You can do HIITs three to four times a week if you're in "decent" aerobic shape....I've done up to 10 a week when I was really cutting hard and fast.

    With HIIT, is the High Intensity more important, or the intervals?
    Because when I'm jogging (generally 3-5 miles per day) my heartrate is in the high intensity range (150+) pretty much the entire time. I can't do real HIIT for more than 15 minutes or so, so would jogging like I do for 30-45 minutes beat 15 minutes of HIIT for burning fat?
    Or is the lack of intervals really a bad thing?
    I slow to a fast walk for a minute or so after 20 minutes of running and then start up again.

    when you're jogging, your heart rate usually hovers around 70-80%. With HIIT, your heart rate should be as close to 100% as possible.

    With that said, my heart rate hovers around 90% when I jog (heart rate of 170-175).

    My heart rate gets up to approximately 180 when jogging. I keep it up as long as possible, then take a quick break, letting it get down to 150 or so, then starting up again, and jogging for a while. Repeated maybe 3-4 times over a 45 minute period.
