Thanks so much for taking the time to answer this, KT. I have done both: machines and free weights and seem to have better results with free weights. Like you, I do use weights with my cardio and it increases the intensity. I have been doing HIIT solely for the reason that it helps my blood sugar. It does increase my appetite, but both aerobics and HIIT bring down the glucose circulating in my blood stream, which helps my insulinism.

I will head over and check out crossfit. Right now I am doing alot of the older Firms and a Cathe Friedrich HIIT.

Sorry for the threadjack!!
