I'll admit, I'm enjoying the HIIT training. It's something new so I'm not sure the shine will diminish, but I'm enjoying the change of pace. I avoided HIIT in the past because in high school, I'd get light headed if I tried it, and then when I started running, I thought why increase my heartrate when I'm already doing that with my running. Cross-training's supposed to be a break from that.
This is not a review, but I'm getting a lot of help with Fitnessista's new book, HIIT It! I needed a reference because aside from the Jillian Michaels workouts, I wasn't sure what else there was to HIIT. HIIT It! not only has examples of what a HIIT exercise is, but it includes many different workouts. How can I get bored and plateau when there are so many to chose from?
There's also a section on nutrition, and recipes from her blog are provided. I'm not really looking to do HIIT to lose weight, but there are some recipes I've tagged to try in the future. Fish tacos, protein breakfast cookies, chicken... I really want to try the breakfast cookies, but I don't want to buy a huge thing of protein powder until after I move. It would be just another thing for me to lug over to my new apartment.
