The Cardio Training Shortcut To Lose Fat And Build Muscle Faster

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:

  • burns fat
  • builds muscle
  • enjoys optimal health
  • improves your athletic performance

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.

Sprint HIIT Training For Beginners

Sprint Interval Workouts

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.

It Doesn’t Matter How Fast You Are Compared To Others

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.

Beginners Can And Should Do Sprint HIIT Training

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.

Side note: if you’re currently obese and brand new to fitness, I would first start you on a progressive cardio program that builds you up to sprint HIIT training workouts.

How To Get Started Losing Weight When You Are Obese

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.

Why Sprint HIIT Training Will Get You Lean Faster

Pros And Cons Of LISS Cardio

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.

How To Do Sprint HIIT Training For Beginners

Sprint HIIT training is simply completing short but intense sprint intervals, followed by longer rest periods.

How To Do HIIT Cardio Correctly

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 Benefits of Sprint HIIT Training:

The metabolic and hormonal effects of sprint HIIT training are incredible as well.

Increased Production of Growth Hormone

Sprint HIIT training has been proven to create a greater increase in growth hormone production.

How To Burn More Fat [Naturally Increase Growth Hormone]

As a Live Leaner, you’ll love an increase in growth hormone, as it’s known as the anti-aging and fat burning hormone.

Win win.

In other words, sprint to look younger, and be leaner.

Increased Production of Testosterone & IGF-1

How To Boost Testosterone Naturally For Men

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.

  3. It would be a shame if you did not get ripped when normal people build
    muscle easily using Morsch Muscle Madness (Google it).

  7. Hi Brad
    LOVE your channel, info and energy! I have purchased your sprinting
    program. I am starting on level 2. I have a question about incline. If you
    are using the treadmill should you be on an incline at all and if so how do
    you judge how high. I realize this could vary from machine to machine. I
    don’t always use a machine to do my sprints BUT I was just wondering if and
    when I do should it be inclined. Although I am just getting started I think
    you have designed an awesome PROGRAM! Keep up the GREAT work!

  8. I have done intervals on the dreadmill but it’s normally after a few minutes of steady state cardio. I like doing those speed bursts, it makes me feel Wonder Womanish. your program sounds like it will me improve those special powers.

  9. Hey Brad I’m a huge fan of your show. I’m a triathlete who uses Tabata intervals for both the bike and the run. Love the intervals!!

  10. Love that you brought up the Afterburn Effect…BUT you have it backwards…sprinting is what maximizes the afterburn not steady state. SPRINT!!

  11. I don’t sprint, because I have always thought that longer steady cardio like jogging was healthier and more effective. Also because if the afterburner effect I heard thst goes along with steady cardio. If this is true then I’m very excited for more info on it! New sub that’s pleased with the channel.

  12. Have you figured out when you’re coming to LA yet? I found the SM Stairs yesterday that you could easily smoke my ass on… Okay, that phrase – VERY WEIRD!!!!

    And we can make VIDEOS!!!! Yes, PLURAL!

  13. I began doing sprints on Sunday mornings before breakfast. But now that the snow is on the ground I don’t have a park just two blocks away to do it in. (Not an excuse I know!) I will have to find a new place to make this happen, indoors of course 😉

    I was doing 6 x 100 M sprints and I tell you I was gassed by the end. I was also timing my sprints and it is sad to say but I am no Usain Bolt! (He would have me beat by the time I reached the 60 M mark. Still I loved it and I can’t wait to get back to them, So much more fun than being on a tread mill.

  14. Definitely agree with you . Great way to burn high amount of calories in a shorter amount of time . My favorite

  15. Love sprint intervals, tabata style!! 20sec sprint, 10sec rest, 8 intervals for 4 min. At least 3 sets 🙂 With a 5 min warm up walk/jog, and then a run/walk interval 1min run, 1 min. walk, follow up. To reach at least 30 min in total. Can’t wait to see the next episode to hear your suggestions!! 🙂

  16. I do interval sprinting on a treadmill….I also do intervals on a spinner bike, which I’ve had great success with. I’ll typically do 45 secs for the intense interval, and then hang back for 2-3 mins to catch my breathe before going again. Is that right? It certainly appears to work….

  17. I actually do sprint because I feel my body likes that more than regular jogging. I get more tired and I can feel the sweat come right away. Do abs the same day you do cardio 😉 a tip 🙂 but Brad.. how many times a week should I do this intervals and how long should it last? 🙂

  18. I am currently following a six by six sprint program coupled with IF and after seven weeks I have lost five inches of my waist line
