Re: Official workout/supplement thread.
Run, or pump, or jump as hard and as fast as you can for a minute, then take it down slow for two minutes. Repeat that until twenty minutes is gone (really hammer away at it...go HARD), and you'll feel like you can't walk. Heck...All you gotta do is run the steps at home. Go up and down three times, rest for two minutes (walk around the house, get a drink of water, etc..), hit those steps again.
This no doubt works- if you can do it.
The problem with these workouts is that they are high intensity. Not everyone's body can handle it, including possibly yours over a sustained period of time.
What works when you are twnety doesn't work when you get older. As you get older it's different, and if you want to keep training your body, you can't work it as hard as you can every time out.
I'd rather do wind sprints everytime out too but my knees can't take it.
People who do over twenty minutes of cardio on a treadmill but pace themselves are working out smart sometimes, though I do agree that you don't have to be on there for an hour.
There are also cardiovascular benefits to prolonged exercise.
