TMHS 092: Top 15 Ways To Do HIIT For Fat Loss (And What Makes HIIT So Effective)

All exercise is not created equal. Just like calories, there are good forms, not-so-good forms, and everything in between.

To get the body and health you want, it’s critical that you learn to exercise smarter and not just harder. In our society of over-indulgence, we can latch on to the idea that if a little running is good, then running a half marathon a day must be better.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

What it boils down to is beginning with the end in mind. What are your real, desired goals? What is the end result that you really want? If you want to complete an Iron Man, fine, go for the endurance training to help you build the capacity to do it. If your goal is fat loss and looking better in your birthday suit, then I’ve got a much faster and more efficient way of helping you get there. It’s called High Intensity Interval Training or you can call it HIIT for short.

There isn’t one single form of exercise that’s more effective than HIIT for fat loss. Piles and piles of research are stacking up showing that HITT is in a league of it’s own. It works, but only if you work it. So today you’re going to learn 15 different ways to do HIIT that you can use whether you’re a beginner, intermediate, or more advanced in your condition and physique.

And you know how we do it! We’re going to take things 10 steps further and share with you exactly how HIIT works so effectively to change your body. We’re going to get into an awesome conversation about muscle fiber types, hormones, plus a whole lot more. Let’s go!

  3. Do you recommend HIIT for couch potatoes with very little endurance, and severely overweight? It seems overwhelming to keep up with the circuits.

  4. Your show was interesting. First time hearing it and I liked it. I’m interested in your nutitional segment. Thanks for the information. Let’s hope I can apply it.

  5. I love to do Kettlebells for HIIT and other workouts. Can you please, please, please have Lauren Brooks on next? She is so inspirational and her workouts are the best. I honestly injured my wrist and back following the most popular kettlebell workouts on Youtube before finding her DVDs and channel. Her form and instructions are wonderful, she is a role model for moms everywhere, and her work is amazing!
