HIIT workout emphasizing quads & hamstrings

Like I have written before, I ONLY do High Intensity Cardio (HIIT), and I use it to augment and workout specific lower body parts. I previously wrote about a great glute workout on the stair machine, now I’m ready to tell you about a workout that emphasizes quads and hamstrings using a stationary bike. This is directly from my ebook, “Fat Burning Secrets”.

  1. Find a stationary bike that has foot straps on the pedals. You cannot work the hamstrings unless you pull up with the leg on the foot that is ascending.
  2. Set the seat height so that when your leg is extended it is almost fully extended at
    about 170 degrees.
  3. Insert each foot into the foot straps on the pedals.
  4. Warm Up: Pedal at a moderate rate for 10 minutes.
  5. Increase the resistance to as difficult as you can for 60 seconds. The resistance should be enough to require standing on the pedals while still keeping the motion fluid. Make sure you are pulling up with the ascending foot
  6. Return the resistance back to the moderate setting (warm up level) for 60
    seconds.
  7. Repeat steps 5 & 6 two more times.
  8. After the 3rd interval, return to a moderate resistance and pedal for two minutes.
  9. Repeat the 3 one minute high/one minute moderate intensity intervals.
  10. Cool down: Pedal for 10 to 15 minutes at a moderate pace.
  11. Stretch the quadriceps, hamstrings and calves very well while they are warm.
