G’s Driver’s License Weight Challenge – Exercise Plan Breakdown Part 2 and Day 22 Results

Exercise Plan Breakdown Part 2

The other type of cardio on this plan is High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). I’ve read different opinions about whether LISS is better or not. They both have their own benefits, so I decided to incorporate both for this challenge. With HIIT, you alternate between short bursts of high energy with resting periods. These intervals, as well as the entire workout, can vary in length. I do 30 seconds on (go all out) and 60 seconds rest for a total of 45 minutes. I may do half-sessions over 2 days.

Like LISS, you can perform HIIT with different methods. When short on time, I’ve used my air climber or jumped rope, both of which help add to my step count. However, my favorite is using a rowing machine, like the one that I have, pictured below (the lady is not me, though). I love rowing for many reasons – it combines both resistance and cardio, and it works pretty much all muscle groups! I do it while watching a movie.
