Anybody do HIIT here?

    As far as traditional cardio goes, it's all well and good, but HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) can take less time and be more effective because of an effect known as the "after burn effect."

    A lot of bodybuilding enthusiasts use it to stay lean and shredded.

    Anyways, this is the android forums so let's keep this Android related. If you do HIIT, do you use an app? If so, which one(s)?

    I dont know if this is classed as HIIT, but this is what i do on my cardio days

    Warm up
    Sprint 400m
    Rest 3mins
    Sprint 300m
    rest 2 mins
    Sprint 200m
    rest 1min
    Sprint 100m.

    I use the Endomondo app, but only to measure out 100 meters if I'm not near a track and I'm doing my sprints in the park. It's pretty accurate. Not bothered about calories burned etc.

    Very nice. I've never been a runner so for cardio/conditioning I head into my gym and do timed prowler pushes or tire flips. 3 minutes on, 1 minute off.

    I do 5x5 lifting; squat, deadlift, military press. Also, body weight movements like incline, decline and regular pushups, reverse and standard dips, leg raises and pull/chips ups. All that 3x a week so everything is worked each workout day. Opposite days I'm going to start running, my cardio needs help. Years ago I always used to run. Just recently had a health scare and next week more tests to confirm positive or negative results.

    Well, not really. I used to use the UP24 app that came with the Jawbone UP24, but only to get a general idea of my caloric release. It didn't really do anything except serve as a glorified timer that gave me a (probably) incredibly inaccurate representation of my exercise. That being said, I did exercise harder/more when I was constantly logging my stats in and recording my workouts every day.

    I'm running about 7KM every other day now. I feel great, nothing like a true cardio workout. To keep track of my distance, route, speeds, altitude, etc I went with a Polar M400 GPS watch, a fantastic device and 100% independent of the phone; was using Runtastic but the G3 bounces around too much.

    Yes - I definitely prefer it to steady state cardio as well. I don't use anything other than the stopwatch on my S6 right now, though I am toying with the idea of buying a Gear S2 (would be an rather expensive stopwatch though!)
