I'm getting back into working out again and just wanted some opinions on HIIT cardio.
I am overweight and out of shape for the most part. I am pretty athletic however so I am used to training and exercising. I am interested in losing fat and gaining lean muscle mass as fast as possible. I realize this will take a long time, so I am patient, but I would like to lose the fat and fat weight as quickly as I can.
I have a 500-800 calorie deficit I would like to accomplish daily as well as incorporate HIIT training 2-3 days a week with weight training. My question is, should I be doing HIIT at the point where I plateau, or is it recommended to just start out with HIIT?
My basic cardio would consist of a daily M-S combination of Elliptical training and speed interval training on the treadmill, but would it be more beneficial for FAT LOSS to do something like this.
Monday: AM Weight Traning
Tuesday: PM HIIT
Wednesday: AM Weight Training
Thursday PM HIIT
Friday: AM Weight Training
Friday: PM HIIT
Rest: Sat & Sunday
Would you recommend someone re-starting their training to start with this, or a gradual build up of daily cardio with weights?
Thanks so much.
