Anyone do a HIIT workout successfully and get good results while weight lifting?

Is it easy enough to incorporate weight lifting? If so, do you do it before/after or alternate days? A fear is that my ace will be too tired to lift weights. With my schedule, lifting weights is hard enough.

My goal is fat loss while maintaining muscle growth. Not concerned about weight loss.

As far as my diet, I don't consume much sugar at all unless its in iced tea but don't eat very lean. I'm guessing I eat lean 25% of the time. 2 small and 3 normal meals a day. Consumed carbs come from sugar free multigrain bread which I have acquired a taste for.

Thanks for the help.

Personally I prefer to separate weight lifting for bulk with any type of cardio/HIIT. So they say your muscles grow when you lift heavy weights because they are trying to overcome the strength requirement you're putting on your body. More muscle fibers are created, ligaments and tendons get stronger, etc. If all that's true, I want to be as relaxed as possible when pushing my body's muscles to their limits. If I'm out of breath and worn out from jumping around doing super sets of burpees and kipping pullups, there is no way I'm going to be at my maximum potential for strength.

My opinion would be the best way is separate your days of lifting and interval training. But that is not realistic for everyone. I would say second best is to lift, then do your interval stuff after.

Also, would you mind explaining what you mean by eating lean?

High protein, low carb, typically. Complex carbs are ok, but simple carbs are no bueno.

I donít know your age but be careful. I was lifting weights only and added Camp Gladiator last March. I was very pleased with the transformation of my body although I only lost 4 pounds. In August during HIIT I tore my calf muscle. I was pushing too hard and I knew it. I go in for an MRI in a couple of weeks to see what can be done. I tried to let it heal on its own for a while.

I know that didnít answer your question but keep it in mind. HIIT definitely works if you can hold up to it.

Is this part of a group ex HIIT program or on your own? That makes a big difference in how you structure the sets.

Father Time always seems to play a factor and life gets in the way sometimes. Breaking up aerobic/cardio work and strength training can be a challenge especially with limited time and an individual's ability to recover.

A thought and solution for keeping them part of the same session on the same day is to play with the variables of work to rest ratios. Regardless of sequencing i.e. - lift, cardio, lift, cardio. OR cardio, lift, cardio, lift you can stay with a 2:1 work to rest ratio for cardio and 3-4:1 for lifts and still maintain the intensity levels you desire. Depending on the energy systems you are attempting to tap with cardio you may try shorter intervals with more sets.

I agree with this. I lift two days a week and sprint/jump (HIIT) one day a week. Your HIIT workout should only last 10-15 minutes. Spread your workouts out so you have enough time to recover before the next one.
