Five Ways To Spice Up Your Cardio Training
There’s no question about it, one of the most boring forms of exercise for most people is the dreaded cardio training. While cardio is definitely not necessary for fat loss if you have a good diet in place, it’s important to know about heart health and all the benefits regular cardio can provide. If you aren’t looking after your overall health and well-being, this could come back to get you in the long run so along with achieving your body weight goals, it’s something else that you must take into consideration. Fortunately, if you’re willing to get a bit creative there are many ways that you can spice up your cardio training so you can take your results to the next level. Let’s take a look at what you should consider so you can stay away from those boring cardio routines.
Add Intervals Of Varying Lengths
If you currently aren’t on the interval bandwagon, now is definitely the time to do so. This variety of cardio passes by quickly and will take your fitness to a whole new level. All you have to do is alternate between higher intensity exercise with lower intensity ‘active rest’ periods, forming an effective workout that takes just twenty minutes to complete. Since you are working at such a high intensity during the intervals, you’ll see significant benefits to your fitness as well as your metabolism at the same time. Aim for intervals of varying lengths, anywhere from twenty seconds to one full minute to really spice it up and prevent boredom.
