Part of Round 1 (1st set of 12 weeks) of BBG consists of 3 LISS days per week. LISS:Low Intensity Steady State. I play it safe. When I started BBG I didn’t want to overwhelm myself mentally or physically… I didn’t want to bite of more than I could chew. So, I chose to keep it simple: walking at an incline. I continue to increase my incline each week to push myself. When I first started, but I set my incline to 3%. Now that I am 8 weeks into the program, I set my incline to 11.5%. My goal is to reach 15% incline by the end of my first 12-weeks.
Some other simple examples of LISS are jogging, biking, and swimming. To learn more about the importance of LISS days, check out Kayla Itsines blog about LISS here.
