Cardio For Fat Loss: High Intensity Interval Training Cardio Vs Low Intensity Steady State
HIIT vs LISS
We tend to see a lot of people doing hours and hours a week of LISS and according to calculations they should be losing pounds, but they can’t lose anything because your metabolism adjusts to low intensity exercise. It just doesn’t cut it because it’s just a calorie burn at that time, not 24 hour energy expenditure. If you do LISS all the time, you’re basically trading calories in and calories out and you can cut these same calories through diet and still get the same effects.
Best way to go about it is mix up the two when people reach a point they can physically do each + weight work.
