E21 How to HIIT It in Ketosis: The High Intensity Episode

January 17, 2018

So on this last Sunday Supp a question was asked about High Intensity Interval Training. Eric briefly answered the question but felt like there was a lot more that could be discussed on the ins and outs of HIIT workouts. Chad took it one step further by challenging Eric to have this episode discussion while completing a HIIT workout himself. So tune in for some intense discussion during an intense workout (and pay no attention to Eric's heavy breathing...unless you're into that kind of thing, no judgment).
