Day 105: Hybrid Cardio


Today's post is for people who are serious about shredding down to single digit bodyfat. First, a little background. I started my fat loss journey on November 8, 2006 at 20.8% bodyfat, I am currently under 10% with my goal of 5% by March 24, 2007 already 'in the bag'.

Obviously I am doing something right. Today I will let you in on my 'secret' fat loss weapon... Hybrid Cardio. This form of cardio has been a major component of my success so far. Actually, cardio is the most important 'shredding' tool that you can use.

My system combines two forms of cardio in one session, one at maximal intensity (Tier 1intensity) and the other at sub-maximal intensity (Tier 2 intensity). The major benefit of Hybrid Cardio is that it allows a quick high intensity workout while preventing adaption which is body's number one enemy when it comes to transforming your physique.

Hybrid Cardio also gives you variety with your cardio sessions so you never get bored. For example, today I did skipping (Tier 1) and boxing (Tier 2) and felt the 'buzz' kick in after only 5 minutes.

This 'buzz' is the chemical reaction of endorphins flooding you brain and bloodstream.

It does not get any better than this!

This is THE ONLY way to train, hard, heavy and intense.

Until tomorrow...

Eat Clean,
Shred Hard,
Think Big!

Good job on the new physique...
workin on one myself.
I personally love HIIT cardio as well. Great endurance booster and great way to track your progress by allowing to "up" your intervals.
I personally do my sessions for 25 mins(I choose to run most of the time). May I ask you how long your sessions are since you've had great success? and I'm curious as to how long of a session is needed to get great results like yours.
Thanks and much appreciation for your time. Keep up the phenomenal work!

Thanks for your kind words. In regards to the length of my HIIT I now do 24 minutes. I do 12 minutes on each Tier.

However, in the 'early days' I was doing about 30-40 minutes per session. 20 minutes of HIIT (Tier 1) and 10-20 minutes of (Tier 2).

Once my level of fitness increased I was able to push myself harder in a shorter period of time.

I trust this helps,
