Last week I was talking a bit about my recent HIIT cardio workouts, and how tough they are getting. They are about to get even tougher. Today I’ll be shortening the HIIT workout from 18 minutes to 14 minutes, but the intervals are going to be significantly more challenging: 45 seconds at a 100% effort, and just 30 seconds of active recovery. There will be a 1.5 minute warmup followed by 12.5 minutes of hell. Of the 12.5 minutes in which I’ll be performing the intervals, a full 7.5 minutes of that time will be spent riding with a 100% effort. During those “all out” intervals absolutely nothing will be held back. HIIT is great way to lose fat, but it will also whip you into very good cardiovascular shape. I enjoy LISS cardio on occasion, but HIIT workouts are definitely my favorite type of cardio workout.

I’ve opened the August “100 Challenge” for entry. Details are immediately below…
