    I am new to CNS. I am just finishing my first week of re-orientation. I have a question about exercise while following the CNS protocol. I typically weight train 3 days a week and do HIIT (high intensity interval training) 3 times a week. In the book, Kiefer says not to do high intensity cardio. My HIIT sessions are usually 25 min during which I do 5 sprints each 45 – 60 seconds (85-95% max heart rate) in duration followed by 3-4 minutes of rest. Is it ok to continue this exercise? Also, during my weight training sessions (about 1 hour long) I wear a heart monitor and my heart rate is in the high intensity (80 to 90%) range about half of the time. Is it ok to continue this? I look forward to your feedback.
    Thank you

    CNS was designed for sedentary people. You can try and may have good results doing this. Eventually as intensity increases and body fat and substrate decreases, you’ll need to introduce some carbs. Keep tinkering and finding what works for you.
