    Question Bastardized HIIT Training - LOL


    Im not into all these crazy rules and wearing a stop watch and all that jazz LOL

    So, I've been using the K.I.S.S principle. I'm I screwing myself?

    35 TOTAL minutes
    (20 minutes of HIIT) on the treadmill as follows

    10 minutes at 90% PERSONAL MAX SPEED
    (gotta warm up the old bones, Im old)

    Then I begin my version of 20 minutes of HIIT
    :

    1 minute at 90% PERSONAL MAX SPEED
    1 minute at 60% PERSONAL MAX SPEED
    repeat for 20 minutes........

    5 minutes at 30% PERSONAL MAX SPEED
    (cool down)

    Your speed for the work is too low, your speed for the rest is too high. If you can run for 10 minutes at 90% MS, then whats the point of doing 1 min intervals at that same speed?

    I would suggest

    A. Use an incline on the treadmill of at least 2% no matter what you are doing.
    A2. Perform a dynamic running warm up prior to treadmill sprints (after you 5-10 min jog).
    B. Find a speed you can maintain for no longer than 1:15, run that for 1 min, then drop it down to a walk for 1 min. Repeat that 10 times.
    C. Your warm-down period looks good. Stretch afterwards.
