Different types of HIIT cardio

  1. Different types of HIIT cardio


    hey guys, i want to know what the different ypes of hiit cardio there are. i know about sprints and car pushes and sleds but i am getting very bored with those. anybody out there know a list of hiit style cardio that i can do to switch it up?


  2. intervals on a bike
    high knees (sprints on the spot)
    kettle bell swings

  3. Log carries, throws for distance, rolling (pushing across the ground), line jumps (piece of tape on the floor) jumping rope (endless possibilities). Just some other options that are inexpensive and can be found lying around. I think HIIT can be achieved with most anything if you keep the correct tempo and intensity high enough. Try it with a partner and compete for an added bonus.

    30s of light weight hang cleans
    30s jump rope
    1 50m farmers walk with a hex bar (my personal favorite too)
    Repeat 5-8x

    1 minute as many push ups as possible
    1 minute bike sprints
    Repeat 5-8 times

    Probably the craziest form of cardio i have ever seen thts intense bro

  8. Whatever you do do not try intervals on a treadmill. Watched a guy at my gym give them an attempt. He ended up getting shot off. I'm a fan of the stationary bike and sprinting. What these other guys have posted is good stuff too

  9. I sprint suicides in my backyard. Except when returning to my starting line I run backwards.

  10. Yesterday we did sprinting in place with a 25lb plate held in the high port position. 1min on, 20sec off ,etc for a few minutes. I was not keeping time so do not know how long. But I was puddling sweat. HR racing.
    Lunge, Lunge, Squat with a 45lb plate held close to the chest-1/8mile nonstop.
    Burpees with dumbbells.
    Jump squats with a 45lb plate held close to the chest. 1min on, 20sec off.

    Seconded. I'm not a fan of HIIT I don't think its an effective athletic booster nor that great of a help with fat lost. I know you said you were bored with normal sprints so this probably isn't what you want to hear but why not just change your sprint program up? Do flys(jog x amount of meters then run 100% x amount of meters), shuttle runs, and hills sprints.

  14. Yeah, I think all my HIIT has decreased my athletic ability and made me fatter.

  15. :I'm a big fan of PHA circuits for days I don't have time for a full workout or for when I just feel like getting in a fullbody thrashing. If you're not familiar with the idea of Peripheral Heart Action training look it up, it's great if you want a simple way to burn a lot of calories quickly while causing a lot of EPOC.

    Supersetting sprints with kettle-bell exercises are great too, just don't be like me and injure yourself with the sprints.

    Also, I disagree with those that believe HIIT decreases athletic performance. I ran a 19:30 3 mile on my last PFT after running a 19:05 last year. My time went up, but my training for the running was almost nonexistent this last year with the exception of occasional HIIT. In the past I had trained much more with distance running.

  16. Of course you disagree, it was a crazy statement. It's like saying that weightlifting makes you weaker.

    I wondered if your original post was sarcasm, but the internet is full of idiots....

  18. Row Sprints for 20 seconds / 20 seconds off / 30 kettle swings / 20 seconds off.....there is one interval.....repeat 15 times.....throw up intermittently only during off times and enjoy!
