I did my first HIT today, 20 minute of 30 second vigorous with 90 seconds of active rest 9x’s with a 2 minute cool down. Followed by 40 minutes of strength training.
It was explained to me that you do HIT for hormone release and follow with strength to use those hormones to build muscle and burn fat.
Is this really the proper use? Has anybody been doing this and getting results?
I’m thinking about adding in a 20minute hit before my strength training (2-3x’s a week). I get plenty of really great cardio that I LOVE, I don’t love the bike but I could get really into it if steps up my strength training game.
Thanks an advance for sharing your experience!
