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?

    2 minute intervals

    I've started to do HIIT type training again, and have been doing 2 minute intervals. 4.0mph low speed, then 8.3-8.5mph high speed on the treadmill. 12 minutes total, 2 minute walk, 2 minute run, repeat. Then usually about 5 minutes to cool down and try not to puke. Should I switch it up to shorter one?

    What's your goal?

    Fat loss, cardio performance, general conditioning. Felt like I was going to die yesterday. Heart rate peaked out at over 170. Definately a workout.

    The general consensus is that shorter intervals are better. But lots of people make good progress with longer intervals.

    I recommend a heart rate monitor. Pick some reasonable interval times, and measure progress by recovery time of heart rate.
