Dear Scott,

Although you may be familiar with the phrase high intensity interval training (HIIT), you may not be familiar with Supramaximal Interval Training (SMIT), which many fitness trainers, coaches and exercise enthusiasts are actually doing, and mistakenly calling “HIIT.”

In this post I provide a very simplified delinination between supramaximal interval training and high intensity interval training, and share with you some research showing how SMIT may be a more effective training method than HIIT at improving fitness and performance.
