We made it by way of October, which suggests the month of cardio intervals is over and we now get to lie on the ground, sweating and panting, and vowing to by no means do that once more.
Whether you hopped on a cardio machine on the health club, did some HIIT exercises in your front room, or took the time to be taught to row, I hope you bought one thing out of this problem—even when it’s simply the information that intervals are maybe not your favourite kind of train.
Then once more, possibly you’re keen on them! I would relatively focus and do some brief sprints than slog by way of hours of steady-state cardio, though it’s extra a psychological than bodily problem for me. Sprints are onerous, however I at all times know they’ll be over in a couple of minutes or seconds. Steady state is simpler in your lungs and muscle tissue, however boring. Still, it’s onerous to beat a jog down a scenic path in lovely climate, once you get the prospect. And if you happen to’re in a position to zone out and do your cardio whereas listening to a superb podcast or one thing, possibly regular cardio isn’t so dangerous.
So what are your reflections on the month? Did you discover the intervals thrilling or grueling? And what was your favourite strategy to do them?
