The truth is; Yes that works, but it is not nearly as effective as HIT cardio. To burn loads more calories than standard cardio all you need to do is cycle between periods of high intensity activity and less strenuous recovery periods.
The great thing about this type of cardio workout is that its quick and super effective. Even when you are resting, your body will be burning calories at greatly increased rates.
