Recognizing, however, that few of us willingly can or will practice such straining all-out effort, the researchers also developed a gentler but still chronologically abbreviated form of HIIT. This modified routine involved one minute of strenuous effort, at about 90 percent of a person’s maximum heart rate (which most of us can estimate, very roughly, by subtracting our age from 220), followed by one minute of easy recovery. 20 minutes only! #intervaltraining Training Fit Healthy Stuff, Fitnesshealthystuff Healthy, Healthy Diet, 1 Minute Interval, Fit Healthy Stuff Healthy, Training Fitnesshealthystuff, Cardio Workout, Fitnesshealthystuff Fit, Interval Training
After a warm up, begin on 4 mph at 5% incline, briskly walking for 5 minutes. Pump it up for the next 3 minutes by running on 6 mph at 2% incline and then at a 7 for 1 minute. Finish strong on a 10% incline walking at 3 mph for 1 more minute. Repeat this cycle for a total of 5 rounds and finish with a few minute cool down. Then reward yourself because you burned about 500 calories! Woot!
I love to do these workouts and really like to make up my own combinations. I made this sheet for anyone who wants to try but also for myself. I have a little note book with them so here’s just a few. remember go at your own pace but push yourself. Even if its just one more than you want to. I have a gymboss interval timer but you can also get an interval timer app but i’m sure you could also find one on the computer if need be.
