I've been reading about HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), and wondered whether any one does it on their running rest days? There's a program called BodyBoss, which seems to be aimed at women, that I keep seeing on Facebook. It's structured so that you do three weekly workouts, with rest days in between, so could feasibly fit nicely into the my C25K rest days.
However, although it's seems to be great for strength and toning it's all done on a mat eg lunges, squats, and other similar stuff done at great speed and great intensity), it also seems to be very cardio/ aerobic/ or maybe even anaerobic. Would that mean it's too much to do on a running rest day, not giving me recovery? I'm a bit confused!
I think my main priority in getting fit is to do it in a way that avoids injury, and is as health promoting as possible. I don't care about getting a six pack! 😁
