What Do You Do For LISS Workouts?

LISS: stands for Low Intensity Steady State. It’s basically any low intensity cardiovascular exercise that maintains the same duration and speed throughout.

So, what I do is WALKING for 35-45 MIN at 6.0-6.5 km/hr (3.7-3.9 mph). I either walk outside and enjoy the scenery, or walk for 45 minutes on a treadmill at the gym while watching TV (i always try to go when FRIENDS is on :D). If you don’t like walking, Kayla also recommends cycling or using a cross-trainer. I’ve heard of some people who do Yoga for their LISS sessions!! What’s important is to do LISS from 3 to 5 times a week, ideally on the days in which you don’t do resistance training.

  1. Hi there!
    How long did you do LISS for the first time around before switching to HIIT?
    I’ve been doing LISS every day but sometimes I switch up the incline anywhere between 6-15% and the speed is around 3.5-4.5 mph for 40 minutes. I just wanted to know if you did LISS throughout, did you see results by week 12?


  2. Hi! I wanted to know if you ever do LISS the same day as resistance training? Is it recommended, and if not why so?

    Thanks and best wishes!
