Maximize your time and your workout with short sprints

In this article, the author explains HIIT, Tabata training and RHR (Resting Heart Rate) and tells more about sprinting. However, he relates the Tabata study with rowing, instead of stationnary cycling.

Full article here: 

For example, Lance Armstrong’s RHR is between 32-34. Mine is around 45-50, which is athletic for my age (42). This is more important than body composition, because your heart determines your workload. You can be a little overweight but if your heart is healthy that’s a step in the right direction.

The first time you do HIIT, be sure to start out with by only doing a couple of sprints so you don’t over exert yourself. And remember that there’s a saying that goes like this: Dead Last Finish is greater than Did Not Finish, which trumps Did Not Start.
