Well I'm starting to feel my regiment on elliptical is beginning to get boring / ineffective...in about 18 days I lost maybe 2-4lbs... I am intrigued by the HIIT type of exercise and was wondering if anyone actively does this on an elliptical machine. Typically I am on there between 30-35min at a constant rate something like 140-155 paces, level 7-8 goin to 10 by the last 50-100 calories on the counter and at the same time doing the cross-country arms thing. Today I kinda tried HIIT on a non-arms elliptical...Went for a total of 17min...first 3min calm 140-145paces at resistance 7 without holding on, then go for about 1min at 165-170 then back down to 140-145 and I did this repeatedly to the 15min mark. By 15min, I decided to up to level 8 and do 2min 165-170 till the counter read 200 calories. (im assuming this isnt accurate). Hopefully you guys can help map out a good routine. I'm pretty proud of my progress and would like to continue...I been goin to gym 5 times a week for the last 18-20 days and intermittent before then. I gave up soda and am watching my calories...I even have another post up about elliptical someplace on here.
