For the longest time, I was scared of HIIT workouts. I can’t remember exactly what made me scared of them, but (for some very obscure reason) I was terrified of HIIT workouts. Whenever I was doing a workout calendar, I would skip over the HIIT workouts because I was scared.
I think I compared HIIT to Crossfit (which still scares me, but I’m looking into trying Crossfit some time in the near future). I think I thought HIIT was hard and scary and required a lot of strength (all of my strength is found in my right calf) that I didn’t necessarily have.
I just had a really irrational fear of HIIT.
