AM Guerilla Cardio: Stationary Bike Or Sprint ?

On my off days from weights, im doing AM cardio and PM cardio.
The AM style is guerilla cardio, and the PM is more traditional HIIT [15sec sprint 1min rest x10].

I tried out GC the other day at a field near me, but i found it soo difficult, was pathetic at the end, so I thought tomorrow moring I could nip down to the gym and try it out on a stationary bike....anything wrong with that or is that being SOFT ?
I'll still be doing the sprints in the evening.

I also do 12mins of HIIT after my weights as well, but not sure if im doing it right.
1min hard pace - 1min easier pace [on a stationary bike].

Any tips\pointers ?

Im really trying to get this just right for fat burning.

    Well, as ive said, i use a stationary bike

    Best thing is, you can make it more difficult by adjusting the settings on the bike! Too much effort and rather dificult to do it on a standard bike, by the time you've finished breaking, it's already time to go full ball again

    So when you do the "20secs on", obviously your pedaling hard\fast as possible on a high setting [ex 20], then on the 10sec rest, do you stop completely or pedal very slow on a much lower setting [ex 1].

    Well I did it on the bike this morning\afternoon [yeah student].
    I did the warm up around level 8, then the sprint first of all at level 20, then knocked it back down to around 6-8, but then couldnt go as high so it diminished over time to around level 12 being my sprint.
    It was JUST as hard as running, and infact I broke a sweat VERY quickly.

    Now tonight its up to the field for normal HIIT on my feet

    Just keep the resistance the same, keep it high enough so you're not going at a silly RPM during your max sprint(ie. not over 120) then just reduce the RPM during the 10 seconds rest.
