I am resuming training after a long pause. I often do my cardio as follows: 1. 30 seconds of compound movement near max effort 2. 30 seconds of rest or very low-intensity stationary work (like running in place)
The movement during the high effort phase is: - dropping to push-up position - spreading and closing legs, once - 6 mountain climbers - 4 single-leg side jumps - a high knees-to-chest jump I repeat this, usually I get 3 times in 30 sec.
I repeat this for 10 minutes (10 sets). Can this be considered a HIIT workout or a valid way to do cardio at all?
