    LISS, MISS, or HIIT?

    For cardio, lately, I set the treadmill on 7 incline and 7.5-8 speed. I go till I hit a mile, which is under 8 min.

    Which category does this fall in?

    That is HISS (High intensity steady state cardio). It can't be HIIT because 8 minutes is way too long of an interval.

    Knowing this, will this effect my recovery on my weight training? Should I do something else? The reason I try and go fast, is that I really get so bored jogging on a treadmill for 30 min.

    If you are pressing your body really hard during that 8 minutes (which I assume you are, but I don't know what kind of shape you are in), then it might get in the way of your recovery, but it really varies a lot by the person. Since you are only doing 8 minutes, it probably isn't too bad, but LISS would have almost no possibility of interfering with your recovery. If you find that it does get in the way of your gainz, then maybe switch over to LISS. I get bored of doing LISS too, but it's really easy to zone out while doing it--maybe download some podcasts (Bill Burr's Monday Morning Podcast is quite funny for example) or audiobooks?

    Instead of asking questions like this, just vary what you do.

    Jog for 20 minutes some days. Do intervals some days.

    I think it's cool to ask questions, but the answer is really pretty simple: listen to your body. If you feel your lifts suffering, ease it back a bit.
