Hi, I simply wanted to ask if the HIIT really works for fat loss ? And if this is a good HIIT program :
5 min warmup jog
1 min jog
1min 15sec sprint

I think HIIT is very good for fat loss, but as others before posted - eating right is most important part of it. I also are doing HIIT and here you can see my results after around 35 days doing HIIT

i have a question for those people who replied in this thread:
i already don't eat a LOT, my dad is a doctor and i told him to calculate my calorie intake. on days when i ate normal amount, it was 1500 kcal and when i ate a little extra, it was 2000 kcal.
it was a different story when i actually gained the weight about 3 years back, cuz i realize i was living on junk food back then!
but now i feel my diet is pretty okay, considering the 1500-2000kcal thing! (correct me if i'm wrong)
so what should i do? i wish to lose 10kg (22lbs).

What's a good workout/exercise for fat loss?
A good workout program for fat loss would be one that sufficiently strengthens the major muscle groups of the chest, back, arms, shoulders, legs, thighs, abs, and glutes, within at least 8 exercises. Compound lifts are the most beneficial - they utilize the most muscles, which thus creates more of a calorie expenditure. For example, instead of doing a bicep curl which is an isolation exercise, you can do a lat pull or pull-ups, which sufficiently work the biceps along with your back, burning more calories. More of a calorie deficit = better chance of fat loss.I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can't accept not trying.
I'm not out there sweating for three hours every day just to find out what it feels like to sweat.

I wouldnt suggest ramping up the times when doing HIIT as your meant to be pushing yourself to your limit with each sprint.
So say you are doing HIIT for 15mins start walking at a comfortable pace for 1min then sprint as fast as you can for 1min keep repeating till the 15mins are up. You will feel like **** and be blowing gas by the end of it but that is what HIIT is meant to do push you to your limit so you burn more calories in a shorter space of time.
Also suggest if your using a treadmill ot have a 2.5% incline to make it a little more like running on the road.
I normally do HIIT after my workouts and sometimes on off days Ill do 15mins HIIT and 30-45mins LISS.
