    Are you doing it strictly on a cardio machine, using weights or doing it like a circuit?

    I basically do it between lifts. For example I will do 3 sets of arm curls, then between exercises do 60-90 second exercise like mountain climbers, fast walking lunges, burpees, jump rope etc then move to my next lifting exercise. I get my heart rate way up and then use my working sets as my active recover. Which in total is about 3-5 minutes.

    If I'm doing it strictly with cardio, I simple change intensity of exercise every 90 secs up or down. I try to make it fun and even do exercises that I typically neglect like abs.

    I generally do not do HIIT while lifing. I do it strictly during cardio.
    An example would be on a tread mill. After a warmup, run at like 10 for one minute and then walk at3.8 for one minute. Keep repeating.
    If you are just beginning, you want to maybe start with 30 seconds running and 1 minute walking.
    I just found HIIT this year and love it. No more long, time consuming runs.

    I think page 11-13 has a good explanation on it. I could be wrong on the page number though

    HIIT is usually a cardio type of workout. Sprints, rowing, treadmill, etc. Hit or weight training this way isn't very obvious when researching. Basically, HIIT you do for muscle benefits and fat loss benefits and cardiovascular benefits while weight training you can do separately and modify the rest intervals as needed. Short rest periods have always been available. As well as heavy weights with longer rest periods. Something to think about that may be more high intensity for weight lifting is a combination of weight lifting and body weight exercises. Like a bench press followed by a set of burpees. There are advantages and disadvantages to doing this. You could also do a circuit for time. Like a crossfit type of workout. You want to beat your previous time for the lifts. You could also just do a traditional circuit which is low rest and has many different exercises in the circuit. Also, train for intensity but less frequent workouts. Intensity in this sense means heavy. But intensity could also mean low rest periods but a shorter workout say 30 minutes. I hope this helps.
