Default Questions about HIIT

At the moment im going for weight loss but i need endurance for fighting. Do you think HIIT is still better then going for 45min to an hour of running walking around town? I basically am not sure which would be better for my training.

Andrew I've been going through the same exact thing lately (well before I tore the tendon in my shoulder), and I'll be honest, I think I did it wrong.

I thought that getting in longer duration medium intensity cardio was the best way to build up endurance, both muslce and cardio vascular, and it is you will need that and yes it helped me lose some fat too, but personally I find Hiit to be so much more effective at fatloss, that i now feel like I should have done 4 to 5 weeks of hiit for fatloss, then started supplimenting in the longer duration runs.

The reason being, the long duration endurance training will be much easier to do the less fat you have on you. Just my .02

this is what i do and this is what works for me (so far):

i run at the track in my university. one lap of that track is 1/4 of a mile. i usually run 12 laps or so which means 3 miles. now, i run for 1/2 a lap where i am sprinting and then for the remaining 1/2 of the track i just walk.

it has helped me build up my endurance although i dont need it so much. my goal is to lose fat and this seems to be doing the job
