Cardio days

RE: Cardio days
If you love bootcamp, do it. I think it's important to do activities you love. Just know that you'll have to eat a lot on bootcamp days to make sure you net over BMR!

As for C25K, I personally don't think it counts as HIIT. My reasoning is this. In order to properly train to run, which is the goal of C25K, the heart rate should actually stay within 65 - 85% max. And really when starting out, closer to 65% is going to help build endurance for running faster. That being said, I love to run. If your goal is to be a runner, then go ahead and do C25K. But if you're looking at it as a HIIT option and not really interested in becoming a runner, personally I think there are better options for that kind of workout. So once again it's a matter of what's important to you.

Good luck!
