H.I.I.T question / interval training ?


been doing H.I.I.T / interval training for well aboout 2 weeks now.

What i'm doing is on a treadmill so fairly limited i guess i do :

incline at 2(not sure what though)
5 min warmup at 4mph
30secs 9mph
2 mins 4mph

repeat til total time is 25mins ish

Now i was sweating buckets at fist but now not so bad, and anit so tired...

should i run quicker during the 2mins stage ?

or should i have less rest time ??

Also i heard this is more interval training.. is that a bad thing ?

am i wasting my time here then, i want to get fitter and loose a bit of weight...

thanks !

    What your doing sounds less intense than HIIT.

    HIIT would be more like this.

    4 mins light warm up

    15 secs flat out sprint
    45 secs very light jog (almost walking pace)
    Start out at 5 sets of this, or more if you can, then try and add more sets over time.

    You cant do proper HIIT on a tradmill - too dangerous.
