I used to do the same length 30/90...1 min/2 min...BUT it started off with 3 intervals per session ( 6 mins..9 mins ), then increased by one each week to a total of 6 ( 12 mins...18 mins ).Then I would up the resistance.Those ones used to have the 20 mins of SS at the end, swanso gave those to me when I first started out.
Last few months I've been doing the same time in length, but i do the intervals for 20 minutes which I guess for the short ones would be 10 per session....or 6 for the longer ones.The steady state afterwards basically is helpful to reduce the lactic acid, so I only felt it necessary to do 10 mins, well that & I was tired.NOW I'm doing 20 minutes SS because I don't want to visit the gym 2 x a day on cardiovascular day
I do plan to change my intervals, maybe more along the line of the tabata stuff, but it says 4 minutes only ? Oh & lynn another article I read stated HIIT up to 5 x per week IF it was the only training you do.In other words, no weights.My course said 2 x per week, Les also says it can be more so...not sure.
20 minutes of intervals 30/90 seconds...15 mph...3.4 mph
Treadmill 20 mins SS incline .5...5.7 mph
I went to the gym one hour after eating..to find it was FREE time, were people hanging from the ceiling, walked right back out...went to my appointment & errand. By the time I returned to the gym, it was 3 hours after I had last eaten.Now I read last week, that it is possible to use the gylcogen in the muscle up...then the fuel will switch over to fat, depending on the intensity.This is the theory of working out on an empty tummy anyway.I didn't really purposely do this, NOR would i ever recommend it.Those darn beans weren't fully cooked that i made this morning for the beans and rice, though I read its red kidney beans that are actually toxic when under cooked.I did experience some intestinal discomfort, but really not sure if it was the beans or because my tummy had gone past the growling to feeling not hungry ? By the way LES if you stop by, miss science
What makes that growling feeling & noise ?
The legs are painful, not to the point I need to take anything.I actually avoided buying tylenol, think if anything a hot bath would be a better alternative.Hope you all had a good day
