I'm thinking about to do HIIT after weight training.
Two times a week for 30min (5min warm up, 20min HIIT, 5min rest).
Banana+protein shake between training.
Is this going to make the muscles burn?

it's going to make your muscles burn for sure.
what goal do you think to accomplish with it?"The human race is still largely a group of monkeys with slightly better grooming habits. Give them a microscope and and they'll examine their own ****, give them a telescope and they'll go looking for tits."

Do you think it's better to do cardio separate?
ie you can't lift all-out heavy-ass and then expect to accomplish much with sprints and vice versa. plus sprints eat into recovery and protein synthesis."The human race is still largely a group of monkeys with slightly better grooming habits.

I physically cannot do HIIT and weight training on the same day. Yesterday I had a serious leg day, and today, for example, I couldn't do anything leg related. My HIIT is FULL OUT 20 minutes of sprinting and jogging. If you can do a HIIT session after legs, I would think either the lifting or the HIIT isn't intense enough. MAYBE doing HIIT after an arm/back day.Karen

Other thing to tell u: u don't have to sprint all that 30 min. If u sprint only 15 min then switch to steady run (say 5.7 ml/hr) for next 15 min u get the same result, but for lower cost of your precious tendons.
Good luck. Nata

Antagonistic control of muscle cell size by AMPK and mTORC1.

Nutrition and physical activity have profound effects on skeletal muscle metabolism and growth. Regulation of muscle mass depends on a thin balance between growth-promoting and growth-suppressing factors. Over the past decade, the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) kinase has emerged as an essential factor for muscle growth by mediating the anabolic response to nutrients, insulin, insulin-like growth factors and resistance exercise. As opposed to the mTOR signaling pathway, the AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is switched on during starvation and endurance exercise to upregulate energy-conserving processes. Recent evidence indicates that mTORC1 (mTOR Complex 1) and AMPK represent two antagonistic forces governing muscle adaption to nutrition, starvation and growth stimulation. Animal knockout models with impaired mTORC1 signaling showed decreased muscle mass correlated with increased AMPK activation. Interestingly, AMPK inhibition in p70S6K-deficient muscle cells restores cell growth and sensitivity to nutrients. Conversely, muscle cells lacking AMPK have increased mTORC1 activation with increased cell size and protein synthesis rate. We also demonstrated that the hypertrophic action of MyrAkt is enhanced in AMPK-deficient muscle, indicating that AMPK acts as a negative feedback control to restrain muscle hypertrophy. Our recent results extend this notion by showing that AMPKα1, but not AMPKα2, regulates muscle cell size through the control of mTORC1 signaling. These results reveal the diverse functions of the two catalytic isoforms of AMPK, with AMPKα1 playing a predominant role in the control of muscle cell size and AMPKα2 mediating muscle metabolic adaptation. Thus, the crosstalk between AMPK and mTORC1 signaling is a highly regulated way to control changes in muscle growth and metabolic rate imposed by external cues.

I go to the gym and my main goal is weightloss. I do weights for about 40-45 minutes and then 20 minutes of cardio. I try to do HIIT, but usually it's just interval training. It makes me sweat like a whore in church. I have been doing it for about 2.5 weeks and am seeing some good results. I took my first progress picture after the gym today and my waist is already visibly smaller. So for me it works at least to do intervals on either the treadmill or bike.
I have a friend that is a PT and if you are going balls to the wall with HIIT she recommends doing it on separate days.
