So I joined a gym/spa in November and I've been going quite regularly except for missing almost a month in Dec/Jan due to holidays and getting sick. I have been reading loads of stuff on how to increase my strength/cardio and decided that I'm now going to do three days of continous training and three days of interval training (bike or treadmill). HIIT is great in that you can do get the same benefits from a 60 minute workout in 20-30 minutes. I also do weights and train back/chest two days a week and legs/arms twice a week. Do any of you train or workout? This article talks about combing steady state cardio and HIIT (High Interval Intensity training). Best Method for Fat Loss | FitnessRX for Women (lots of interesting articles on that site) I'm determined to slim down and get really fit in the next four months. Last summer I did a 200km bike ride in Canada (broken up into 50km per day for four days). This summer I plan on doing even more biking.
