I did cardio the other day and it was not as bad as I remembered ;)

I did 15 mins on a bike doing 30 sec intervals. It was just a pre programmed interval 1 set up that went from 54 revolutions per minute, up to 78, then to 54 then to 65 etc.

Then I did 15 mins on the tread mill jusr running and sprinting in short bursts.

I want to put together a good hiit cardio routine I can improve on.

How do you improve on a cardio routine? Longer time overall? Longer sprinting? Faster sprinting? Faster slow intervals?

Whats the best way?

Also how would I add incline running into the mix? Does anyone know any good hiit routines?

I was thinking something like this next time.

--------------------

15 mins at interval level 2 (next level up) on the bike.

-------------------

20 mins in the treadmill

2 mins warm up

1 min at a light jogging speed followed by 30 secs of fast running.

repeated repeated 10 times in all which is 15 minuties

3 min warm down.

-------------------

Thats a total of 35 mins cardio. I am going to perform this at least 2 times a week, 3 sometimes.

So what ya think?

To tell the truth I am not even that worried about the advantages of hiit over normal flat running but it spices things up and bores me less.

oh and how would i add incline into this?

thanks!

Try to improve your rest intervals and intensity levels in a set time period.
