Physical training based on body weight was practiced by the Roman military in ancient Rome. Recently some researchers reintroduced the practice exercises with body weight using interval training high intensity, known as HIIT. The objective of this review was to identify the main variables used in the high-intensity interval training with body weight and propose a load control strategy for the practice of HIIT with body weight. From the data available in the literature suggest a basic guideline for the development of a highintensity interval training program with body weight with all out charge, based on the training of control through the stimulation time, recovery time, total time training in the session and selection of exercises.
