Today was a cardio only day. I am off my lifting until next Sunday as prescribed by the New Rules of Lifting plan. I did a 5 minute warm up followed by 4 intervals and then a 5 minute cool down. The intervals consisted of 1 minute at 85% maximum heart rate and then 2 minutes of 80% maximum heart rate, for a 3 minute interval.
I felt the metabolic boost for hours afterwards. It lasted so long that I started to wonder why I felt the way I felt and then I realized it was due to the cardio I had done hours earlier.
I must admit that it is hard to avoid my weight workout at the present time, but I am determined to stick to the plan.
