In this follow-up episode, I took some time to digest Martin’s comments in Part 1, read more scientific literature, and use your questions and comments to expand on our first conversation.
There has been a lot of debate in the high intensity strength training (HIST) community about whether or not high intensity interval training is an important adjunct for optimising cardiovascular fitness and health span.
- How important is HIIT if you’re already doing HIST?
- How long does it take for cardiovascular fitness to de-condition?
- How much can you improve your VO2 max and how much is genetic?
- An ideal template for overall fitness
- … and much, much more

This episode is brought to you by ARXFit.com, ARX are the most innovative, efficient and effective all-in-one exercise machines I have ever seen. I was really impressed with my ARX workout. The intensity and adaptive resistance were unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. I love how the machine enables you to increase the negative load to fatigue target muscles more quickly and I love how the workouts are effortlessly quantified. The software tracks maximum force output, rate of work, total amount of work done and more in front of you on-screen, allowing you to compete with your pervious performance, to give you and your clients real-time motivation.
As well as being utilised by many HIT trainers to deliver highly effective and efficient workouts to their clients, ARX comes highly recommended by world-class trainers and brands including Bulletproof, Tony Robbins, and Ben Greenfield Fitness.
