    The question is, how can you do cardio on leg days? I can barely walk down the stairs, let alone get on a treadmill.

    Yea don't skip leg day. The two goals of cutting are to lose fat and preserve muscle. The only way to preserve muscle is to keep lifting just as you had been. HIIT may work out your legs but no where near where squats/leg presses/calve raises etc will.

    A lot of people advocate no cardio(see above) when cutting but that's up to you, just don't forfeit any lifting to do it.

    Leg day can't compare to cardio. Just not enough muscle parts being work out.

    It's light years easier to preserve strength and muscle if you curtail cardio and take the calories out of your diet.

    Cardio has your body working at cross purposes - choosing between endurance and raw strength. This is okay, except that when you're cutting, you need to give your body all the excuses you can to keep that metabolically expensive muscle around.

    Cardio gives your body this message: smaller, faster, lighter, more efficient!

    If the cardio is intense enough then yes you can replace it with HIIT, reason being, I see many dancers that dont do a single squat yet develop great legs, so I say go for it if it works out.

    You're still going for endurance over strength, which will hurt you when you try to gain again by hurting your strength. (*training like a sprinter will help, but I'll bet even sprinters' squats are suboptimal in sacrifice to their actual sport - which is as it should be.)

    Endurance athlete, strength athlete, jack of all and master of none. Pick one. You can have an enviable physique with any of them if you do it right - but it's best to decide which you want to be from the beginning.

    IMHO, YMMV

    I'd personally pick strength, but if it's a convenience for him to do HIIT instead, then it'd probably be better foe him in the long run, but I agree with what you're saying, although some people are better off with what works with their life. In the end its his choice.

    I have to admit, it's a far sight better than what the average person is doing.

    Definitely so anything he picks would be better than nothing, but there are choices that MIGHT get him better results, he'd be good either way.

    This sounds like the only guy on here training like he should be..
    I can barely soft walk to the front door when i am done.


    Your legs are the biggest fat burners on your body do not skip them.

    I am willing to bet you do not squat because you should be huffing and puffing between squat sets.

    people who do not squat, deadlift, or do rows are total pussees.

    Your body works on economy of motion.

    You will be recruiting more muscle on leg lifts than you would sprinting, because sprinting is seen as a more natural exercise where the body will only utilize as many fibers as necessary to complete the task. Squatting is not so natural and hence will cause a cascading effect withing your muscle fibers generating a recruitment.

    How important is brute strength in your equation? You're sending mixed signals to your neurophysiology about what you want your legs to do.

    Likewise, heavy leg training is pretty cardiovascular if you're doing it right.

    What is behind your desire for HIIT?

    HIIT won't work the muscles the same way.. I'd just go with the leg day and not do cardio.

    I'm training more for looks rather than body building. I know, why come onto a body building site? The point is I've been wondering the same thing: can I substitute leg days for HIIT? What if my HIIT changed each week from treadmill to elliptical to bike, and each week I added in an exercise for my calves and booty (exercise being kickbacks with weights, or even Sumo squats)? From what I understand I wouldn't loose too much muscle. I'd probably gain a bit more in my quads so, if needed, I could do some leg curls for the hammies back there.

    Must do leg weights especially with HIIT.

    Leg muscles respond better to LISS (ie putting a 30kg backpack on and going for a normal walk an hour a day). Calves get huge from this, but only some of your quad and thigh. You still need leg weights to hit the glutes and work the full length of the quad and thigh..

    Don't know why people don't like leg day, i feel strong af lifting hundreds of pounds.
