How Many HIIT Cycles in a Year?


#1

How many.8week HIIT cycles can one do in a year without over training? I have been lifting for 2 years and doing regular cardio for 5 years


#2

Well this has got to be one of the more vague questions I have read for awhile.

Much more info required.

Start with your stat’s (age, weight, training age etc)

Than give an example of a HIIT routine.

Than give us info about other activities or lifting or sport you engage in.

A good solid goal that you are trying to achieve would be icing on the cake.


#3

Also confused by the question.

What do you mean by HIIT ‘cycle’?

You could do HIIT every day if you wanted, and it was structured properly.


#4

Yeah I think you would have to put yourself in a pretty uncomfortable place to reach over training with HIIT depending on what kind your doing, when I’m in my offseason I can do 4 sessions of HIT, 3 sessions of skill work, and 3 or 4 lifts a week just fine.
