i don't do very much cardio, and never have, because i have been skinny fat all my life and have focussed on gaining muscle. i am now pretty happy with the lean mass i have gained through doing two bulk cycles and would like to cut a bit before a short, clean winter bulk
i have never done hiit as many of bb.com members have. i don't have the endurance, or maybe cardiovascular fitness, to do 30secs on 30 secs rest, or even 20 secs on 40 secs rest.... i do 15-20 secs metaphorical-balls-to-the-walls and then rest for as long as i feel i need to, sometimes up to a full minute...
i recently started using superpump 250, which has been awesome for my lifts and giving me energy for hiit. i did hiit this morning, about two hours after a HUGE breakfast, had atleast 54oz water beforehand and then about 8oz water with superpump 30 mins before hiit
i did 12 minutes, felt TERRIBLY exhausted, got really dizzy in the shower...
am i just not fit enough? when you say you go as hard as you can during hiit, do you really mean that? am i pushing myself too hard?
i am just frustrated... i am trying to put more cardio in, do not want to do steady state because i prefer hiit and don't have much time in the mornings... what is the problem here?
have been working out on/off for years, but like i said, never did much cardio...
