On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m talking about sprint HIIT training for beginners.
Guess what Live Leaner?
You were born to have a lean and muscular body, that is hot to look at.
So here’s the cardio shortcut to building a body that:
Say hello to sprint HIIT training.
Sprint HIIT training is one of my top shortcuts to Living Lean.
This type of cardio is one of the best ways to build the healthy and lean body you deserve.
If you’re a beginner, just an average exerciser, or you think you’re too old or too out of shape to do sprint workouts, you have been misinformed.
Sprinting is all relative.
For example, it doesn’t matter if your sprint is only as fast as my jog.
As long as your sprint is performed at a high intensity to you, your body, muscles, and hormones still get all the same benefits.
A sprint for a beginner, will still have the same metabolic and hormonal benefits on your body, as it will on mine, even if I’m twice as fast as you.
In other words, sprint HIIT training workouts are specific to you and your current fitness level.
Therefore, if you’re a beginner, get the idea out of your mind that you’re not fast enough to do sprint HIIT training workouts.
Depending on your current fitness level, this beginning cardio program would typically consist of 3-8 weeks of low intensity steady state (LISS) aerobic cardio.
After the 3 weeks, I would then progressively build you up to a higher intensity sprint HIIT training workout program.
But if you’ve been watching Live Lean TV for a while now, you should already be past this beginner cardio progression.
Here’s an analogy comparing a typical aerobic LISS cardio workouts vs. sprint HIIT training workouts.
For optimal performance and improving overall body composition, think of slow and steady LISS aerobic cardio as your training wheels.
After a few weeks of training, you need to be continuously progressing towards reaching your goal.
This progression would include taking off the training wheels.
Once you remove the training wheels from your bike, that’s the equivalent of moving from LISS cardio workouts to sprint HIIT training workouts.
So in other words, for a lean and athletic physique, you need to be sprinting.
Sprint HIIT training is simply completing short but intense sprint intervals, followed by longer rest periods.
Research has shown that following a progressive sprint HIIT training workout program creates a dramatic anabolic response in the body to burn fat and build muscle.
So yes, you can burn fat and build muscle at the same time.
The metabolic and hormonal effects of sprint HIIT training are incredible as well.
Sprint HIIT training has been proven to create a greater increase in growth hormone production.
As a Live Leaner, you’ll love an increase in growth hormone, as it’s known as the anti-aging and fat burning hormone.
In other words, sprint to look younger, and be leaner.
Sprint HIIT training has also been shown to increase the production of tessterone and the IGF-1 hormone.
The natural production of testosterone and IGF-1 helps create an anabolic effect in the body leading to more lean muscle.
Remember, building and maintaining lean muscle is the key to keeping your metabolism burning on high, and keeping you younger.
So let’s recap.
Even if you’re a beginner, following a progressive sprint HIIT training workout program will help you:
Sprint HIIT training truly is one of our shortcuts to Living Lean.

I’ll also be comparing sprint HIIT workouts vs. traditional forms of LISS aerobic cardio that you see everyone doing.
