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
High-intensity interval training - great breakdown! This is simply the BEST form of exercise you can do to see results. Hands down.
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!
should you lift weights and do cardio on the same day? this research is interesting, but I still believe if muscle growth is your goal, you should lift first, while you have greater energy, then perform cardio.
