Cardio Fat-Blast Tip: To have the best advantage at staying focused, make your cardio choice one you like. If you’re a cardio newbie, we’ll help you construct a no-fail program by using an initial three-week timetable. This method will allow you to adjust your personal schedule and allow for consistency and ease into your program. In addition, switching up your cardio options along with the types of programs and intensities you use on training day will help you get the most out of your cardio workout. There are a few must-have’s in your program …
Your Tummy-Tightening Program Should Include:
- A warm-up, cool-down and stretching
- A challenging mix of intensities – forward, backwards and side-stepping
- Hill climbs, speed and recovery intervals
If walking is your thing, make sure you’re upping your pace from week to week until you reach a brisk stride that elevates your heart rate in a way that even while working you will still be able to have a conversation. What does this mean? This translates to your perceived amount of exertion feeling about 70-75% of your maximum level of effort, or a 7 out of a 10 max. This is how you’ll maximize calorie burning while still remaining within the high end of your ability.
Safety First – From Tread to Trail
When beginning any type of exercise, be it cardio machines or trail walking, maintain a realistic approach to your ability and your goals. Start off in a light manner and progress naturally. Always include a warm-up and stretch to avoid injury. And if you have any physical or medical concerns, consult your medical professional beforehand. Don’t wait until after you’re injured!
