Daniel H LOVE the HIIT!! I like to keep it unstructured on a stationary bike. I vary my times all the time i.e. 1 min high intensity, 1 min low intensity, then 3 mins high intensity, 1 1/2 minute low intensity etc low intensity I set it around levels 7-11, high intensity 12-17. Have had great fitness gains and weight loss benefits while keeping lean muscle mass.

Actually this Gymboss timer is quite good, way better than a general sports watch. For interval training I usually do this the other way. Set the timer for say 2 min, and it will beep to let you know to change gears :)
Yea, for general running I...
