Firstly, the most detailed part of the book was the contents page and my kindle reader said I was 10% of the way through the entire book by the time I reached chapter 1. By the time you get through chapter 2 you have already read three separate disclaimers, telling you to get clearance from a doctor before taking part in HIIT. While this is good advice, it sure does get repetitive.
Once the book starts properly, I became confused by, "Thus, HIIT with anaerobic exercise will produce more results than HIIT with aerobic exercise." I've read over that line several times and I still don't know what is meant? It is not explained. HIIT is exercise with both anaerobic AND aerobic, not either/or.
It was actually an irritating read due to the amount of times it repeats; warm up and cool down, warm up and cool down, over and over again. Yes, good advice! But how many times do you need to provide filler content?
I was interested in reading about the Little Method, which was new to me. However this only lasted for about a page and by the end of it, I was not the wiser. I give you two stars instead of one because you have pointed me in the direction of this method, which I shall research.
The book does indeed emphasize the concept of post exercise fat burning which it hammers home reasonably well, but the book does not mention any of HIIT's other benefits like increased VO2 max, improved athletic performance, endorphin levels and improved anaerobic threshold, or if it did, then it was so short that I missed it.Read more ›

I got this book to understand more of why they worked and more tips on how to do them. This book does not dissapoint, I am motivated to keep it up. Very good information! Short and to the point.
The book describes several HIIT methods, doscusses the reasons for using each program, and explains the rational behind them. I felt like this book helped me understand what HIIT program to use and why, and also when I might want to switch to a different HIIT program.
Yes, you can find the same info on the internet but let's be honest: spending hours researching a subject doesn't make sense when you can spend 1 or 2 bucks on the ebook that is right in front of you.
Since my initial review (and now that the snow has finally melted) I have started HIIT and am confident I will see results. :)
I like how this book describes several different training methods for high intensity interval training and instructs the reader well how to perform exercises while minimizing the risk of injury. The book also includes very useful workouts for beginning, intermediate and advanced athletes. I will start with the beginner's workouts, but look forward to moving up to the more intense workouts at some point!
Everybody is quite busy these days, right ?
He depicts several concrete methods to obtain the advantages of HIIT. Whether your goal is to burn more fat or improve your condition, a lot of inspiration can be found in this book.
To wrap it up, it doesn't matter if you're a beginner or already advanced, Marc has something for everyone.
