Question for others about a peculiar thing I've discovered about myself with regards to HIIT cardio.
Anyone hold a lot more water because of it?
For my whole prep with Shelby I went with fasted morning LISS. For past few weeks I've been experimenting with wingate sprints (basically 30 sec on air dyne bike increasing resistance steadily throughout trying to max out RPMs throughout).
Macros didn't change. Weight training didn't change. Just in adding a few sprints like this held alot more water...especially in abs and legs.
So I dropped it for a few days. Even went for a pretty strenuous hike over the weekend and it's been like night and day in terms of how much drier my legs, abs, arms...everything looks.
I find this very bizarre, and it's making me question if HIIT might not be best for me after all.
