That's awesome. Sounds a lot like hiit. Are you still lifting? Have you seen a decrease in strength?
Yes I think it would qualify as HIIT. The clear answer to whether I've lost strength is yes simply because I'm not using the equipment I was before and much lighter weight. In my younger years I was also heavy into martial arts. Not so much anymore but I might get back there someday.
