Well, after doing my back/bi lifting, I went ahead and tried it today... albiet on a bike, and not running. I was pretty beat, so i wasnt planning on doing as much cardio as normal; I just wanted to give the HIIT a try.
On level 12 (of 20), i did a 5 minute warm up around 80rpm.
After the warmup, I alternated 1 minute hard pedaling (110-120rpm), 1 minute regular (80rpm).
At the end of each hard minute, my heart was racing ~175-180bpm. The "light" minute didnt seem to lower my heart rate any. It went down to maybe 170.
I did 10 minutes of this alternating, and then decided I'd had enough, and did a 3 min cool down to get back down to 145bpm.
For as much as I hate running, I'm damn glad I did this on a bike!
I think I'll try this for a week or two and see what I think. I might end up going back to my normal hour though.
Anyway, just though I would share my experience.
