I’ve been doing my HIIT routine for awhile now and have missed very few weeks. There have even been a few times that I’ve had to double up on HIITing for the week due to lack of options for running or time. However, I’ve come to realize two things:
- I don’t truly love each of the exercises that I’ve chosen as much as I thought I would
- Some of the things I set the bar a little low on
So, changes to the HIIT routine this time around include new exercises and variations on others, but still sticking with 8 exercises for 20 seconds on/10 seconds off for 3 rounds. I hope that the next time I’m ready for a change it will be the 4th round!
If you’re interested, I also read this article from ACE the other night
it doesn’t seem to matter what type you’re doing, after 8 weeks interest starts to decline….we’ll talk more about motivational strategies, variation, and other principles of training again soon!
And, as always….
