comment How to structure a high intensity interval training (HIIT) program?
A popular structure in terms of timing and effort is "Tabata", see fitness.stackexchange.com/search?q=tabata. If you do any sports with high intensity moments (e.g. martial arts, team sports), you can structure exercise part of the program around them.

comment Is it advantageous to be fit when young?
Here is one reference that shows that training over longer time is good for you, see europepmc.org/abstract/MED/318008/… However, that is hardly a surprise..

@Chris, good point. However, too specific -> less useful but also too general -> less useful. So I was just thinking about one way of making it more grounded.

@vPeric, I think there are some research, e.g. see the search on Google Scholar for "life long physical training" in this question fitness.stackexchange.com/q/7258/3778

comment Which are examples of “higher intensity cardio”?
No, then this would not have been written :-). 224 is the estimated EPOC in ml/kg, see the right axis.

Agree, the question needs a bit more work to be answerable. One way of would be to relate more to your specific situation, perhaps something in line with "I am xy years old, haven't exercised, how should I plan to get better at <..>/lose weight ../... and sustain this over more than a decade without <...> side effects of injuries, overtraining..
