A special form is the High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). Although it is called interval training, its effects are equivalent to an Extensive endurance workout. There are indications that excessive HIIT (more than 2-3 times a week) may harm your mitochondria. When used less, it is an very efficient workout.

HIIT: 3x – 4x (10x (20" Pmax Rmax → 10" rest) → 5' rest) High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)
