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?

    PowerManDL or others, HIIT questions

    These may have been answered before but sometimes I need a little more clarification.

    Here is what I was doing on a treadmil. 1min run with 2min fast walk. From the link posted in the HIIT thread I should be doing much shorter and more intense runs. Say maybe a 10 to 15 second sprint, but how much time before I sprint again? If I only wait 30 seconds or so before I spint again, I'll only be good for maybe 3 or 4 minutes. Is that long enough? Any suggestions on a routine for treadmil. BTW, I tried this last night and it seemed to work ok on the treadmil. I'll do it outside when the weather is a little better.

    What about leg fatigue, heart rate, and resparitory rate. By the time I started the 3rd run, my legs were starting to burn, and my chest was pumping hard. Not to sound stupid, but is that what I am shooting for?

    Thanks again,
    Jerry

    I'd take the approach of say a 15 second sprint then a 45 second rest. If you can only go a few minutes, that's fine-- make it a goal to add a minute the next workout, and build up to where you can go for longer periods.

    What I usually do is a 2 min warmup, then gradually increase every minute to get up to a full sprint, then go back to a light jog for another min, or so till I build up to a sprint;. This usually last for 18 min and my last 2 min is a cooldown which I start from a jog down to a walk.

    I usually do this on a treadmill but also like doing it with the X-trainer as well or the bikes.
