    I think you should combine this with your sex thread and see what happens.

    3 minutes speed on heavy bag, 1 min rest. 3 minutes power on heavy bag, 1 min rest. Repeat.

    There are a lot of mobile apps out there that will time the rounds and some will even call out random combinations to mix it up.

    Three minutes is too long for what I've read of most interval regimens. The idea is to maintain maximum effort the whole time and nobody can do that for three straight minutes.

    Re: Interval training

    Interval training does not necessarily mean HIIT. Ultimately it depends on your goals... I train to fight 3 minute rounds, so my intense periods are three minutes long.

    Re: Interval training

    I listened to a fascinating podcast about interval training the other day. http://tim.blog/2017/01/23/the-one-m...martin-gibala/


    To increase VO2Max 3-5 minute higher intensity sessions (not max effort but not easy) for a period of 20 minutes of hard work is apparently the optimal minimal dose, with a 2-3 minute warmup and res periods of 1-2 min between intense periods.

    If crunched for time and wanting to go all out, as IlluminatusUIUC said, you must keep the working sessions shorter... something like 20 seconds of all out work (i.e. full sprint) with as few as 3 reps per workout done just 3x a week can bring benefits

    Another workout that they recommended was 1 minute hard then 1 minute easy and do that 10 times each for 20 min total.

    Re: Interval training

    Sometimes I think people make exercise too complicated. Changing routines every couple months is a given in my book.

    The newest fad routine is just an attempt to sell you something IMO.

    You learned your lesson after buying those Jane Fonda VHS tapes, didn't you?

    to add:

    anytime fat loss stalls, it's good to change your routine to begin doing something you are not efficient at.... inefficiency causes the body to work harder to adapt and change (also why things like walking with weights through sand is a good workout).

    so if you get really good at running and want to lose weight you might need to switch to swimming for a couple months

    I tend to store it in my back.
    Sometimes stubborn areas are due to hormone patterns (the "beer gut" is an example as alcohol lowers testosterone and increases estrogen and in that state of existence belly fat is created), genetics, etc but there are some people out there with theories to hammer those hard to reach spots. "Spot reduction" techniques for already lean individuals such as keeping the area you want to target warm, doing fasted cardio, and then working that area in between intervals (i.e. running then doing crunches during your "rest" portion" and wearing a wrap around the midsection).... Finally some people believe in bouts of 'cold therapy' to achieve the same goal.... in this case that might mean wearing an ice belt for I think 30 min at a time


    I've tried none of these as my abs show and I don't care about my (minimal) back fat haha
