Actually Saralynn, that was the next thing I was gonna try!! A trainer at my gym recommended that... and that is what actually got me thinking about doing this as a walking hiit...but I will probably try keeping my speed at the max running without pain and try to increase the incline to get that 9-10 intensity. I will have to play a bit.
The bike... we are the best of friends yet enemies. I want an alternative to the bike because I work so hard I feel like throwing up after. I like other options so I will not resent doing cardio...I like that completely exhausted feeling but I want to challenge myself in other ways too to keep things exciting.
For the bike I use the watts program. I warm up at about 125 watts for the first 2 minutes and currently I increase to 6=150watts, 7=165watts, 8=190watts, and 9=210watts and when I get to the level ten I try to go at 240-250watts for the minute. Every week I try to do better. I can say I ALWAYS hit my 9's and 10's in this workout!!! BRUTAL! And when it isn't as challenging...I up those watts!
Ideally you would have a cone to jump over, you don't have to.
Deb should be fine cause she won't be doing high speeds like on
Fast sprint . Feel free to try it out!
Let's just say I'm not the most graceful ballerina in the corps. I'd be tripping on a cone for sure. This might be an alternative if I get snowed in and have to do cardio at home, but for now I think I'll just stick to the treadmill.
Want it. Plan it. Do it.
Just means you need to do this interval. It will get your heart rate
Up much more. And for a greater workout ditch the pustule and do
The other exercises in the pool.
Walking won't be enough over the long term.
If hip problems prevent running, sprints, or elliptical, you may want to consider swimming....
Once I discovered the joys of weight training, all other passions were transcended.
