For my cardio workout today I did low weight squats with only a 1:00 rest in between sets. The entire workout looked like this:
Only 1:00 rest in between each set:
LifeCycle-2 miles (6:53)
LifeCycle-4 miles (14:15)
Total of about 35:00 up to this point, at which point I stopped the heart rate monitor.
Average Heart Rate for the 35:00 workout=136
While I have had my average heart rate far higher than 136 during most cardio sessions. I feel that the speed in which I performed the squats will help drive my actual squat workouts to new highs.
It also teaches my legs to work with lactic acid more efficiently.
Do any of you have any ideas on how I can improve this type of workout? Any comments are appreciated.
Thanks for reading my post,
