The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    question about hiit

    just heard about hiit.sounds good for getting in your cardio,but a problem for me because i can't sprint,jog,bounce.etc. because of my back injury. what could i do instead that would have the same results as hiit.

    yes,. you do the step program on those bikes. low, mod and heavy tension and pedal as fast as you can for a minute. Essentially that is HIIT on a bike.

    Have you tried to see how fast you can masterbate? jk stationary bikes are where its at. Can you use an elliptical or stair climber? Shouldn't be too strenuous on your back.

    Does swimming count as HIIT? Swim 20x25m sprints as fast as you can...

    stairmaster intervals (the one with the actual moving stairs) are my favorites.. i find that stationary bikes feel really unnatural

    Bike intervals are killer.. I ride a road bike and I will do sprint intervals and hill repeats. basically you go flat out for a specific time or till you get to the top of the hill. one day a few weeks ago I caught a big delivery truck at a stop sign and chased him up a couple rolling hills at about 30mph, by the end of the second hill I could not hold on to his draft and he dropped me... I looked down at my HRM and I was pounding out 201 bpm. not bad for a 60-90 second sprint drill.

    If your going to hit up the spinn bike, make sure it is set up properly for you. fit is important for doing sprint and high cadence drills.

    If you use a treadmill try alternating the incline level every few minutes.
    You can also hit x number of minutes on one cardio machine, jump off and immediately get do x number of minutes on another type of cardio equipment.

    The idea is to raise and lower your heartrate every few minutes. It keeps your body from becoming really efficient on any one movement, forcing it to work harder. Therefore you burn more calories and you strengthen your heart muscle.
