HIIT - before and after - fat to fit

Take 10 sedentary & overweight/obese men.

Weigh them, measure them, test their blood.

Throw them onto a electromagnetically braked cycle ergometer (exercise bike).

Subject them to 2 weeks / 6 sessions of 4 to 6 repeats of 30-second Wingate aerobic sprints with a 4 1/2 minute recovery period.

  1. When will the public stop doing steady state treadmill and elliptical exercise and start learning and reaping the benefits of interval training?? Gotta spread the word and educate!

  2. Love HIIT, I incorporate it into my muscle training too. Only once a week at most do I ever do steady state training and I’m in the best shape of my life.
