A New Model for Practical and Effective Interval Training: All-Out Sprints vs Hard Intervals (The 10 X 1 HIIT Method)
High intensity interval training (HIIT), has become immensely popular in the last decade.

One problem with some types of HIIT is that they call for extremely intense bursts - literally all out sprints - that are not practical for everyone, and possibly not even safe for some individuals.

Read on and see the proof for yourself.

"I just listened to the first "Burn the Fat Show" and this one 20-minute message is at the top of my list. I have motivational CD's and books coming out the wazoo and you've set a standard in your show that I look forward to listening to again and again. Keep up the GREAT work!"."
The support here is incredible for my morale. I'm excited about the inches I've lost. In the past when I'd get halfway there, I'd lose motivation and quit. I've never made it this far and still felt motivated to keep going. "
"I have many people everyday ask me what my secret is and how I lost 137 pounds. I tell them the same thing - I use Tom Venuto's Burn The Fat - Feed The Muscle program and it all boils down to "How bad do you want it?"
"I've been following the Burn The Fat recommendations and I now fit into a pair of jeans that I havent worn in a long time. The Salvation Army must love me these days, as I've liberated 12 clothes hangers and two shelves of oversized clothes since New Years!"
