LISSI really need to do some kind of aerobic training, and working my way into some of this might fit my busy schedule better than longer bouts of LISS.
While it provide some befinits, the return on the time invested isn't good.
As the aritle in post 1 stated...
"In related studies, participants did steady-state cardio – jogging or light cycling – for an hour per DAY and experienced about the same results...Seven hours per week versus one hour per week to get the same results?"
If you can obtain the same results with High Intensity Interval Training and even more that you would withan hour Long Steady State Exercise, why not perform HIIT?
If someone enjoys LISS that fine.
For someone like Larry training for a Marthon, LISS needs to be performed; The Law of Specificity.
Anyone have suggestions for doing HIIT indoors....?
Step Up On A Box
Perform Step Up on a box with one leg, then immediately perform it with the other leg.
Start off performing them with body weight.
If that becomes easy, hold Dumbbells in your hand or perform it with a Barbell on your back.
You also can perform Step Ups with a Band. Attached the Band to the mid part bottom of your foot; loop the Band around your neck.
That will work.I have a jumprope but would also need to spend some time practicing and acclimating to it.
