Ok I'm getting really frustrated. I go on the elliptical 3-4 times a week for at least 30 min at varying levels of intensity. I do cardio.
But then when I'm doing the workouts on this app. I'm doing two programs right now. And they'll both have things like basketball shots or squat thrusts or mountain climbers and after five seconds I'm DYING. and it never gets any easier, and it just makes me hate exercising. What am I doing wrong? I've been using this app faithfully for at least six months now, and the more "active" exercises are just not getting any easier. I mean they're not supposed to be easy but shouldn't my stamina for them be increasing?
Eliptical vs some of the hiit cardio workouts on here are world's apart. There are hiit workouts that you can do to increase your endurance. Like find a park with a small hill. You should be able to sprint up the hill between 10 and 20 secs. Once at the top of the hill 40 mountain climbers, 10 pushups. Then walk down the hill to recover and repeat 10 x. It's an awesome workout to do with a partner. You do this once a week you'll gain endurance in no time. A 3 mile jog everyday will also increase your endurance. That's old school. You pick lol.
Its never does get any easier if your pushing to your limit everytime, that is the whole point...
Realise that it's your limit that is changing, think back, I bet when you started you couldn't do half of what you can now!
