    Question How to do HIIT when bulking ?

    Hey, i need advice. Im bulking, but im still doing cardio (steady state running, 30 minutes daily or every other day). I like it, but i want little change sometimes, so i was thinking about HIIT cardio (sprints). 30 min steady state is very good for me, because it wont hinger my gains, but i know that HIIT sprints will affect regeneration and so muscle gains. So my question is -> how long or how should i do HIIT sprints, if i dont want to hinger regeneration ? Thanks

    What are your actual goals with HIIT?

    That said, if HIIT is only going to hinder gains for lower body, not upper (assuming sprinting is the only form of HIIT you are doing). If you can space out the HIIT from your lower body sessions by 24+ hours it's not going to make a huge impact.

    If you haven't sprinted in years, take it easy at first. Very easy to injure yourself sprinting if you haven't done it in awhile. I recommend simply doing intervals first at a faster pace than your 30 minute steady state and then increase the speed of your intervals in step-wise fashion until you essentially are getting to a full sprint.

    Double post coming due to the forum glitching...

    Also consider if when you say HIIT you mean an all out sprint or not. For example, some people differentiate HIIT (high intensity interval training) from SIT (sprint interval training), with different definitions used (ie, SIT can be all out sprints, or SIT can be cardio at >100% VO2max). If you simply mean to do fast intervals over like 30-60 seconds without sprinting this could still be considered HIIT and building up slowly will be less important.

    What is your workout program for lifting?

    Well, i want to do HIIT just for overall health/condition, i dont care about burning calories etc. and the main reason i want to do it is just to have some variety in cardio (for example, one day HIIT, one day steady state etc.) thats my goal with HIIT. I was thinking about sprinting fastest i can for like 15 seconds and then like 1 minute walk and again, for some time. My training routine is Push/Pull/Legs 6x/week

    If it’s just for overall health just walk at a decent pace.

    Adding hiit into a ppl is gonna be a tough balancing act, since it can be just as stressful as a lifting session.

    In that case I would work on just doing faster intervals first. All out sprinting will be more demanding. As you build up to it if you want to sprinkle in some sprints that should be ok. Just start with 1-2 on your push day and see if it impacts your leg recovery, then build up as you would like.
