Does it matter when I do HIIT?

For my current schedule, I do full body workouts Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I currently am not able to do HIIT today due to an Ultimate Frisbee Tournament this weekend and my left quad is still quite sore.

Should I skip a day of HIIT today or should I do HIIT Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday instead?

But mainly, the question I am getting at is if my boyd would benefit more from doing HIIT on my training days? Is it detrimental if I do HIIT on my non-training days?

I think it is better on non-training days.

I'm with Ironman on this one. I'm usually too beat to do it after training, and besides, a lot of m weight schedules are close to being HIIT in nature anyway. Off days are fine.

I posted something from somewhere before that said that growth hormone rises to 1800% of its normal level if you weight train before doing cardio (as opposed to 500% with cardio then lifting), I'm not sure it applies to HIIT, but I would put them on the same day so long as you can fully complete you HIIT program. Otherwise, doing T, Th, Sat may be best, as you'll get more out of it.
