Getting back into lifting after a couple of years of injuries, illnesses and surgeries, I want to try incorporating HIIT for fat loss.
I am a female turning 62 – but truly youthful & highly energetic 62 – most people take me for my mid to late 40’s. (Avatar is my picture from 3 years ago.)
So I don’t want a response treating me like an oldster…
I’ve always done fasted medium intensity cardio – I am an ex-Swolecat client. My workout schedule is MWF cardio, Tu, Th weights with a 2 day split. I would like at least one of the cardios to be HIIT.
I don’t know if there is an ideal time of day to do HIIT? Somehow mid-day seems right to me but I am open to suggestions.
Mostly I want to know what the recommended food consumption, macro proportions and timing for doing HIIT. Search here came up with nothing.
Due to back, knee and shoulder issues (just recovered from 4 months of bicep tendinitis in right shoulder which occurred right after a year of recovering from rotator cuff inflammation in the left shoulder), I can’t sprint so I am thinking of doing Troy Anderson’s Vertical Power Interval that combines DB with incline cardio walk around 3.5-3.8mph.
