I thought this was an excellent article from the myfitnesspal.com website that Trish got me into.

HIIT

I think you can definitely fall into a repetitive motion rut doing LSD. The 20-35 YO kids I see doing HIIT and crossfit stuff definitely look different from the 20-35 YO kids that don't. I'm not sure what the sensible geezer mode looks like (MIIT?), but I think there's some benefit to mixing things up a bit.

I was at the library so I decided to browse the fitness section for a book on strength training after 60 (I'm almost there). Pics of a bunch of old f@rts exercising with cans of soup. Sad Quickly abandoned that book and picked up the one for strength training after 50. Same stuff, just larger cans Sad Sad

I must admit I'm a little baffled by the rise of the term HIIT to describe something most runners have been doing for much longer than I have been alive. All runners who are even slightly competitive mix in at least some HIIT work, so I think the arguement here is that non-competitive people excercising for fitness should do it to.

Back in the 1950's, most runners did little or no steady state running. Steady state running, particularly at relatively slow paces was the unusual, new fangled idea when Lydiard primarily made it popular in the 1960's. As recently as the early 2000's I was coached by someone who assigned short, fast intervals every single day. Even marathoners would only do one steady state run a week. Amazingly he coached someone to a marathon world record using that approach.

Since i discovered HIIT about 20 years ago...I love it. It made a huge difference in fat loss for me.
I agree that runners have been using this type of training for years.
But in a gym, most will use cardio equipment at the steady pace for long periods of time - whether it be a bike, treadmill, elliptical...etc.
Using 1 minute HIIT, I am done in 20 minutes.

I did crossfit for about a year, but found it too be too taxing, and I was constantly getting injured.

So I stick with HIIT for cardio only.

As one coach said, "You're training to run faster, not slower."

I always notice changes in my body composition once I start adding in the fun stuff (tempo runs and interval training).

Cans of soup!!!! You just can't make that up - funny!!!

So.....I guess my problem is that I didn't realize that I have to actually start breaking a sweat when I run - maybe adding some hills - intervals....on second thought I think I'll stick with the cans of soup!!!
