    Default HIIT Training at 47. Anyone with HIIT experience?

    I've been weight training for three years. I've made huge changes in my life and body. It's been tough but terrific. I sort of an old school trainer. Love the 5x5 routines that Steve Reeves did. I did some boxing/weight training, bulking, cutting but all old school stuff I found on the internet and old, (and I mean old), books I found in library sales. All these programs had an effect some better than others.
    Well, I decided it's time to really challenge myself on my 47th birthday. Start a new modern up to date routine. A HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) routine that challenges me to the max. I am hurting worse than I have ever hurt but I know it's working. This just might be the last kick my body needs to progress further. This will be my first attempt at a HIIT routine, I'm going on my third workout and it's a six week 4 day a week split. The rountine works three body parts on each workout. Has anyone of you guys tried a HIIT program? What did you find and what was the results? Just interested.

    I'm 50, my HIIT style training is basically sprints done 3 days a week. Also, on 2-4 mile runs, twice a week, I throw in a 60 yard sprint at each mile. After a few months, I am well conditioned and never suck air. Feel like a teen, look like a mental patient sprinting back and forth in the church parkin lot. My workouts rotate from Wendler' 5-3-1, to Bill Starr's Intermediate, to Layne Norton's PHAT. I also swim and bike twice a week and do 3 sprint triathlons a year.

    I am 46 and have been doing a HIIT workout since the first of this year. My buddy helped me with the excercises and I love it!! It literally kicked my A$$ the first couple weeks and I could barely get through the first round. I can now do a full 2 rounds and it takes me a half hour. I feel like I just ran a couple of miles and I am down 7 pounds. I do it twice a week in between a 6 day weight/cardio work out i found on this site. LOVING IT!!!

    HIIT is a great method to implement into your current program. I use it frequently with sprints and it will get the job done - better and faster.
