HIIT Cardio

HIIT Cardio

High

Intensity

Interval

Training

Just like the name reads,  any time you are doing HIIT you must keep the intensity high and the intervals effective.  There is a ton of variations of this.  I encourage you to be creative and use whatever you have at the gym to get your heart rate high for a short period then rest for another period.  There are many methods to this madness, however below you will find my favorites.

 

Treadmill,  Stair Climber, Jacobs Ladder, Bike

10 secs working x 20 secs resting x Failure

  • Here you will be using any piece of cardio equipment that you prefer.   I recommend one that incorporates the full body movement such as the bike with handles, Jacobs Ladder vertical climber.

30 for 30 for time

  • This is simple.  30 secs working, 30 secs resting.  Set a time.   I usually go for 10 minutes.
  • battle ropes, treadmill, Stairmaster are good for this kind of work

NHL shift

  • 2 minutes.  the average shift for NHL players.  If you want to be in the same shape as professional athletes, you have to train like them.  I grew up playing hockey so I love working like hell for 2 mins then resting for 5.   Pick your poison!
