I am currently on a cut where I do approximately 30 min. of HIIT 2x/week on my rest days. However, I recently pulled a hamstring (sprints) and found this while looking for something to do instead while the leg heals:
The article outlines approaches for GPP, recovery, and mass building, but nothing for fat-loss/HIIT. What would be your suggestions?
I was thinking go as fast as I can for 30s w/ the standard forward grip, rest for 3-4 min (this seems too much for just an upper body workout, though) and repeat for about 6 cycles. Or maybe instead of the standard, bring my arm around in a big circle, more like I’m swimming.
I’ll probably just use fresh socks or an old t-shirt on a wood floor instead of the lid.
EDIT: 3-4 min is way too much rest unless I’m doing some sort of highly active rest. Also, 30s didn’t seem long enough to get the training effect… barely broke a sweat. Socks don’t work so well on a synthetic wood floor.
