I've been doing HIIT for a week now. I just want to know if i'm on the right track and how i can improve it in order to lose fat and improve endurance.
In the morning, I do Low Intensity cardio on empty stomach.
I lift weights 3 - 4 times a week
On the days I don't lift weights, I do HIIT.
My HIIT sessions start in the evening (at about 8pm). This is usually 1 hour 30 mins after dinner.
I start off with a 300m jog to warm up.
Then I do 6 cycles of
100m walk etc.
the 100m sprint is at full intensity and I run it in about 10 - 13 seconds.
so my HIIT training overall comes to about 10 mins or less.
- if I do it in the 8pm and then sleep at 9:30pm, will metabolism
still be elevated or will it be dropped because of sleep?
- Is 10 mins in total too short of a time?
- Are my High Intensity intervals too short? I was reading in another post that it should be about 30 secs of high intensity and then 60 secs of jogging.
- any other tips?
