Both are good in its own way, depending on what.

Yup, for sure. Both are important in their own ways. One example that just crossed my mind is: HIIT > intensity Showing up to workout daily > consistency

HIIT has been shown to be worse for overweight/obese… more risk of injury and burn out. Low intensity is better for them.

thank you for this. I'm obese and I've been telling myself that "nope, don't go to the intermediate workout plan right away. you know that you'll get burnout on exercise if you do that. give yourself some time and complete the beginner plan. 5-10 mins > nothing. don't be so hard on yourself."

Any sources for that? Seems like group training, developing a community, creating friends in classes is fantastic for consistency

Okay i might be lost but what does HIIT got to do with any of those things? Surely doing intervals has nothing to do with building a community.

Also when doing deep work, intensity of focus in a fixed time (2 hours) is exponentially better than passive diffused focus over 6+ hours. Intensity of focus with no distractions is key to a lot of success. I read this some years ago when Deep Work by Cal Newport came out.

The first one is me starting work at 9years old with my first paper route in the 80s. I had dozens of jobs before university and started my own company at 19. I did whatever I could whether selling roses at the liquor store, being Santa's helper or refereeing flag football I was always working. I worked double time through my teens and 20s then less and less through my 30s and was able to retire in my 40s if I want to. It's an option that has its benefits as the next 40 years in life will hopefully be quite easy and relaxing now.
