So you can do this if you wish, but if you get busted up, not...

FIERCE 5 I decided to design "Fierce 5" because I wasn't completely satisfied with any of the other novice programs that are so popular. In my opinion they all had a flaw or two (slow progression, high volume, low enough volume people lose interest and most of them lack what I’d consider proper...

Is Fitness Blender HIIT really HIIT?

The debate surrounding HIIT seems to be never ending- specifically, how long it should last. I've heard every opinion out there, and quite honestly I don't know who to believe. One source will claim that "true HIIT" should not be sustainable for more than a few minutes for the total workout,...
