So I’m doing HIIT classes and I can’t seem to get into the red zone at all! I literally feel like my legs or arms or whatever muscle I’m working will give way, I feel like breath-wise I could probably do a bit more it and that’s why the heart rate monitor is showing say, 85% but muscle wise I just can’t.
Now I’m wondering if I’m just giving up too easily, it kind of reminds me of when I was in labour, I feel like the minute I get a bit uncomfortable I just sort of panic and think ‘ahhrgh oh fuck I can’t do this’ instead of just focusing and going that little bit further. I really haven’t discovered the secret of just gaining composure and holding it together physically. Does anyone have any tips?
