Beginners Guide to Cardio Training
Have you ever stopped to ask yourself if your current cardio training routine is working? Are you seeing results on a routinely basis and are you enjoying your workouts? If the answer is no to either of these questions, then you need to restructure your routine.
Most people never see results from their cardio training because they are taking the wrong and outdated approach. First things first, aerobic cardio is NOT the answer.
If you’re trying to shed serious weight, then you need to stop wasting your time with aerobic routines like long distance running, stationary bikes, and elliptical workouts. All these types of workouts take a ridiculous amount of time to complete, and simply DO NOT give you the long-term results you’re looking for.
Fortunately, there is a solution: high-intensity anaerobic cardio. Anaerobic movements are those that last less than two minutes. These exercises are explosive, high-intensity, and very challenging, but will give you some serious results. What separates high-intensity cardio from moderate to low-intensity is that the exercises actually build lean muscle, decrease fat, and take half the time to complete.
MUSCLE, is truly the only way to maintain your results and ensure that fat stays off permanently. The best part is that these routines will take you no longer than 30 minutes to finish and you will burn double, if not triple the amount of calories you would with a traditional aerobic routine.
Below, I’m going to explain some anaerobic cardio exercises you can start using to see some serious results.
Sprints are the number one high-intensity cardio training exercise for rapidly burning fat and building lean muscle. All you need to do is examine any professional sprinter and you will understand why this exercise is so great. There are many different variations of the sprint including the traditional, interval sprints, and hill sprints.
Each are challenging in unique ways. If you’re just starting out, you should begin with the traditional sprint because this will allow you to build up a solid foundation for more advanced variations in the future.
Aside from sprints there are many other high-intensity cardio exercises you can use such as bodyweight circuits, plyometrics, and agility’s. Each workout is designed to not only reduce fat, but to build lean muscle and strengthen fast twitch muscle fibers. These exercises will add some serious spice to your current cardio training routine and you will finally start seeing the results you deserve.
Now all you need to do, is get out there and get started.
