I don’t much care for working out on cardio machines. Bikes, ellipticals, treadmills, stairclimbers. There all boring. I’ll do it if I have to but I’d rather do something else.
Which brings me to racquetball. There are several guys who play very seriously at the YMCA where I work out. They are all better players than I am and push it hard for an hour. I would much rather do this than attempt some type of interval training on a treadmill. This seems to me to be a good HIIT type exercise. Go hard for a rally, very brief rest between serves, and hard at it again. If I go hard for an hour straight, would you agree that this is decent HIIT training? The current plan is geared toward fat loss. Racquetball M-W-F, Staley’s EDT T-Th-S. What do you think?
