Is HIIT with a heavybag a good idea?
At my Tae Kwon Do class to gain endurance we would do "running roundhouses" where we roundhouse kick a standing bag alternating each leg and keep doing it for 15-30 seconds for a total of 4 to 5 intervals. So, at the moment one foot hits the bag and is coming back down, the other leg is coming back up to kick the bag. I tried to incorporate that with these tables and I just wanted to know what people thought of doing HIIT this way. So in other words, I do running round houses for 30 seconds, and then I just punch a heavy bag (for the rest period) for 30 seconds. I just finished week 5 today and will be doing 11 minutes next week, which is 11 intervals. But now I'm so freakin tired after doing 11 intervals of running roundhouses that I can't get my legs up and instead of punching the bag, I just stop and recover. Do you think stopping and recovering on the "rest" intervals will cause me to not gain the benefits of HIIT training.
I also wanted to know your guys's opinion on why I haven't been seeing results with my workout, and by results, I mean why am I not ripped yet? :smile:
