Tried an HIIT routine on the elliptical today.
15 mins long. First time I tried it on this piece of equipment. I set it on level 7 for about 2 mins, then bumped it up to 16 then back to 6 or seven after 60 secs. I did 7 repeats ranging from levels 16-20. I made it really hard on myself and I was smoked aterwards..., and it was only 15 mins. I dusted myself off with 20 mins on the bike at a moderate level. I must say I am not one that is used to the HIIT principles of training, but this really hit me hard! I seriously felt it in my my lungs and heart, which I haven't felt in quite a while. I had my doubts about HIIT on the elliptical, but 'am really excited to try it again! I am going to do it tomorrow. Then maybe one day this weekend as well.
Anyone got any suggestions on HIIT?
