Question
Hi Jerry,
         
         I have come across many articles on High Intensity Training and High Volume Training. All articles state positive arguments about their approach while decimating the other. All of this is very confusing. Few of them suggest to mix them but don't tell how. What are your views on these training methods? If mixing both is the solution, then please provide a sample of using both methods in a single workout .....Thanks in advance

Regards,

Sukanto

Answer
Hi Sukanto,

I have always said  and still believe today that the best type of workout is the type you will do and continue to do. That could be weights, Running, cycling or whatever. HIIT, ZCycling, running, dancing any exercise is a lot better than none at all.

Here is an article on combining the ones you asked about, hopefully that will help.
