Doing Crazy Cardio & Getting No Results?
Many clients we meet with a goal of weight loss are doing multiple high-intensity workouts each week and frustrated from lack of results. They may actually be overdoing their cardio intensity. While high intensity interval training is beneficial, we recommend getting regular steady-state cardio weekly. This means exercising at 60-80% maximum heart rate, which will improve your body’s ability to break down and process fat efficiently for fuel during exercise For most people, a brisk walk is enough.
Add in at least 1 day per week of moderate cardio for 30-60 minutes:
- Brisk Walk
- Bike Ride
- Kayak or Canoe
- Chasing after Children/Grandchildren (possibly too much cardio)
