HIIT Plan - Is this too much recovery? (Read 63 times)

    Hi all,

     

    Any thoughts on this HIIT plan? It's done on a tread mill 2-4 times a week. with a 0  incline.

     

    I seem to do it pretty easily, however do 'hurt' towards the end. I've read up on HIIT, but not sure how much recovery time is needed. I'm beginning to think 2 mins is too much?

      I'm assuming HIIT is "High Intensity Interval Training"???  Personally, it's a crappy way to train, depending what you're trying to achieve.  And, frankly, I have no idea what you are trying to convey from this chart.

        Ok, thanks for that.

          The TM is not so good for short intervals as you have to wait for it to get up to speed and then slow down.

           

          Seems you'd want to scale your recovery to the repeat.  To me; doing 1 on / 2 off at 15kph / 10kph is harder than 17kph / 5kph, unless that's the goal.

           

          That aside; why are you doing this >2x a week?   What other workouts are you doing?  Easy runs?  Cross training?
