I wanted to take this time to explain the interval training portion of the program. Because it is very important for fat loss, but it is also a little bit complicated for people that have not done interval training before. Now generally I recomment that people use the bike for interval training. A stationary bike is nice and easy because you can transition between hard and easy exercise quite simply. And also you don't have worry about falling off a treadmill. You don't have to worry about advanced sprinting. You'll need to actually warm up for sprinting. With a bike it's very simple. It allows you to do a lot of work, by increasing the resistance, and taking it off quite easily. Let me show you an example using the treadmill for interval training. What I like people to do is to do interval training right after their bodywieght circuit. If you aren't fit enough, you can do interval training, or cardio training on off days instead. We do interval training 3 days per week. So it fits in nicely right after the strength training cricuits, or other bodyweight workouts that you do later on in the phase. If you want to do it on other days, that is fine as well. But make sure you take full day of rest each week. So we are going to do a couple of the interval workouts from the preparation phase in this next segment. Click on the above video to watch the entire Interval Traing for Fat Loss Video.

Today we are going to cover High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). You've probably heard about HIIT a lot these days because it is being used in a lot of programs for fat loss. Smart trainers know that it is much more effective than regular slow, boring cardio, and you actually get results as compared to other cardio workouts where you aren't seeing any results at all.
So HIIT means any type of sprint exercise that lasts from about 0-90 seconds. Anything longer than 2 minutes can get into what is known as aerobic interval training. Therefore, normally you want to sprint for 15, 30 or even 45 seconds, after which time you go down to a very easy period of exercise. That is one of the biggest mistakes most people make when doing interval training. Many people don't drop the intensity down low enough during the recovery period.
For example, if you are going at 10 mph and you only drop down to 8 mph then in effect you're really still doing cardio and not high intensity interval training. You will not allow you body to sufficiently recover from the sprint portion and so you won't be able to sprint hard at 10 mph the next time around.
So, you want to make sure you are going from hard to easy, or going from a sprint to a walk. It is okay to walk in interval training as this will allow you to work really hard and thus provide you with all the benefits of HIIT.
Here is an example of a high intensity interval training workout. Start out with a 5-10 minute warm-up and then jump into a high intensity interval where you can't possibly maintain a pace longer than 30-45 seconds. After 45 seconds, take the intensity down to a very low recovery walking pace. It doesn't matter if you are sprinting at 8, 10 or 12 mph, you still need to come down to the walking pace. That would classify as one interval, and you will do about 6 in a workout, finishing with a cooldown.
That is high intensity interval training, and it will get you more results in terms of your fat loss program and in sport specific conditioning, as well as fitter for everyday activities.
