Hi friends. I’ve always focused my training on strength, power, and size but now want to add in some cardio for health benefits. My initial thought was HIIT style workouts on a spinner or airdyne. I’m beginning to feel like those workouts are kind of redundant to my current strength training as I am still working in an alactic state. Is HIIT really offering cardiovascular benefits that differ so much from strength training? Especially in high volume phases?
My question is, for someone mainly interested in strength but wants to feel a little healthier, is it better to reduce strength training and implement some HIIT w/o’s -or- LISS/LIIT style work on off days for the aerobic benefits?
