I prefer TABATA style training, even for running. One minute running at high intensity and then one minute walking, etc etc... That's just me :)
Hi Kimberly ;) Thank's for the reply! I've never heard of TABATA and just googled it .. it sounds really nice and...intense haha ;-) I must try it! (I have never really done the high intensity trainings..so time for something new!)
I prefer to do a longer jogg because I think it's easier, but I think high intensity is better for muscle building. Honestly though, I don't really like doing either. I like calisthenics.
My preference is the P90x routine, no matter what the weather conditons, I can safely do my daily workout ( 6 days of routine with a day of rest )
On nice days I will take long power walks, and I mix in the long strolls with my Golden Retriever.
Hey Robbie, thank's, your workout sounds really nice! Oh yes, I also love power walks, especially now in spring, it's wonderful ;D
haha..i would LOVE to do it also with my dog... but it would take me 3 days I think to finish such a long walk, cause she is 18 ;-D
Wow...18 yrs old, that is awesome, mines is only 8 months
The workouts are really fun and productive.
hahha.. yes 18 ;-) ..she is just one year younger than me!! But in contrast to her I still have all my teeth, she has only the 2 front teeth left ;D
Ohh 8 month!! Such a cute baby, and full of energy I guess! Is it the picture on your website? so lovely
I do it all ;) Just push that body to the max. Its not a great way to get very muscular or a very fast runner, but it will get you fit :D
Thank you all guys for your inspirations ;) I've never really done workouts at higher intensitiy, but tomorrow is a good day to start trying it out I think,yipiee!!
Love endurance, but sadly have been working crazy hours so I only am able to stick in an hour long high intensity weight training schedule ( which I love too) Sprinting (high intensity) can build fast twitch muscle fibers (type two, think bodybuilding/sprint athletes) and longer endurance jogging builds/strengthens slow twitch muscle fibers (type one, think endurance athletes/bikers/durianrider lol).
Mix it up for sure! The adaptations caused by each type of training are different and both contribute to overall fitness. Variety also makes things more fun and the longer slower runs will help the body recover from the more intense stuff.
I do both, I do interval training once a week (8 sets of ~300 m, run about 500m slowly between the set)), then also do some brief sprints whilst cycling. Intese exervise good to improve insulin sensitivity.
But I also do 5k race on sat and cycling every day 30-60 min.
