I didn't say HIIT doesn't stimulate muscular endurance... just not to the same degree. Marathon runners certainly do use HIIT in training, however, as their legs need to be accustomed to running long distances (i.e. employ high muscular endurance) they use distance running as well.Originally posted by Boarder1
You have 2 contradicting statement in this sentence..You are saying HIIT will increase aerobic capacity to a greater extent than low intensity long duration cardio (I am assuming jogging). Then you turn around and say HIIT doesnt stimulate muscular endurance. Aerobic training is all about muscular endurance (caloric efficiency, maximal oxygen uptake,mitochondrial density, capillary density,etc.). If HIIT was aerobically superior, marathon runners could just do HIIT for training.
Maybe you should have read the post previous to yours before you pulled out your flamethrower.
No flamethrower m'dear sir, just pointing out errors as I see them. Don't be offended.
Edit: I misspoke... not necessarily errors, but misleading information. I wouldn't want someone to think low intensity long duration cardio was the better choice because it burned more calories while being done.
