Default FIIT for Newbies?

Hi everyone!

I tried to look for an existing thread on FIIT (Fierce Intense Interval Training), especially for newbies, but I didn't see one. Is anyone currently doing this and can provide feedback or tips? I've been doing some reading but I wanted to get real experiences.

I am a newbie. I just started about a month ago with walking exercises and just in the past two weeks, cardio (like zumba). I wanted to add something else to my workout regimen.

Thanks!

Trying searching for HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), I've never heard of FIIT but I'd bet they are they same thing.

The InterWebz will have a ton of info for HIIT for all abilities.

My personal experience is that I do better with HIIT on a bike than with running, as all-out sprinting leaves me too injury prone at my age.

I also tried a HIIT routine with jump squats, burpees, mountain climbers, etc. and it was darn hard and I'm sure very effective. But once again made it easy to get injured.

Fitness Blender has a bunch of great free online HIIT routines, with low impact options so there is less chance of injury. They have a bunch of beginner alternatives and are a great resource for people new to HIIT.

Mrs_Snark - yes, I think they are the same thing. Thanks! I have a herniated disc so almost everything I do is done modified. I try my best not to get injured - injury is my #1 fear.

amy_beth88 - Thanks for the tip!
