    High Intensity Interval Training

    Basically it's all-out cardio for a period of time (a few mins), then dropping back to regular cardio, then back to all-out.

    It is supposed to burn more fat.

    Nothing wrong with a bit of cardio. HIIT is fairly intensive though, as it's name suggests.

    you'd be able to do the same with any cardio excercise right? ie. bike fullspeed, slow down, fullspeed, etc. and same with situps/crunches?

    wouldn't you lose more fat going fullspeed the entire time? o0

    You burn more over a longer period of time, it's all about homeostasis. This should be in the archives somewhere it has to be.

    i do know that the big guys do this, so i'm sure it doesn't hurt.
