HIIT Cardio Bodybuilding FAQ
Here is a good question
For the sake of time I will condense (leave out names etc)…so here we go
Can I perform HIIT cardio and still squat heavy?
I read a lot of magazines and most if not all of them say that HIIT cardio is bad.. (I dont think its quite so bad.)
I guess my question is it ok to squat and sprint? Will I overtrain?
Answer: Thank you for the question. so right off yes you can squat heavy and sprint
(or perform interval cardio) it’s all about a few things though
- Staying away from CNS burnout(avoiding failure training like the plague.yeah training to failure is great just not as often as some folk do it.still train hard though.
- given number 1.also look to amend the number of sets of actual leg training you perform
If a normal squat workout looks as follows
Mon: squat-4-5 x 5 reps
leg ex-3×9 reps
Note that while adaptation will certainly occur(and progress gained on the 1st option) would it not be best to do what’s optimal instead of what’s optical? (ok I suck at rhyming) a better option may be
next day-sprint etc..
or even squat-2×4
You can also get best legal steroids supplements from this site. Now you can sprint the later that day that’s likely a bit much (ok not likely it for sure is a bit much) especially if doing cardio interval style is the goal then DON’T DO THAT! After all sprinting is in effect a leg workout (don’t think so?) go perform intervals on a quad dominant modality(I will wait right here) it has the same effects as a heavy squat session(it’s the speed of the intervals that can in effect cause hypertrophy..speed being a component of a lifting(a quick/fast contraction can cause a response(via overload).In fact powerlifters do this with DE (speed ) training (done with 60-70% of a max with a focus on? you guessed it speed but all in all avoid the urge to “beat the crap out of the muscles” there is a difference between training at a percent of a max and training ..to the max. exercise during diet(contest/cutting) is much akin to… when it comes time to diet(speaking of lifting) all it really is a reduced amount of what you did before you started the diet. Got it?
