Problem: You slack off when it comes to your HIIT workouts
Being slow to increase the intensity during interval training or resting for too long means you really aren’t pushing your body to the levels you could be. For example, if you choose sprinting for your HIIT workout, the work period should see you hit between 90 and 100% effort, which is basically an all-out sprint. Once you’ve finished a work period, you should be resting for around 30 seconds to 1 minute.
How you can fix it: Time your rest periods
Yes, your body needs a rest period. This allows a bit of recovery and for you to catch your breath. Just remember that with HIIT, you aren’t necessarily wanting your body to recover fully after each sprint, just long enough for you to exercise at capacity during the next work period. Setting a timer will stop you from losing track of your rest periods and keeps you on schedule. Staying on top of the work/rest periods may help encourage much better endurance and lung capacity.
While managing a cardio routine seems much easier than following a set of exercises, there is a lot more involved than you might think! Regularly monitoring your cardio habits can certainly help you see areas that might need a bit more work and focus, as well as where you are making great progress.
When you’re done with your rejuvenating cardio session, you’ll certainly feel ready for a nice refreshing shower! Enjoy, you’ve earned it
