Step 4: Cardiovascular Training
This is one of the best ways to burn fat! The only thing you need to consider here is the level you are at now. For example you may fit into either one of these 3 types:
Beginner - you are just starting out to exercise and haven't exercised for 6 months or more.
Intermediate - you do some form of exercise such as walk, jog, ride a bike on a regular basis but only minimal three times per week or less.
Advanced - you exercise regularly and it is part of your lifestyle at least 3 times per week or more.
Cardiovascular training can be done as:
1. Low-intensity - long duration
2. High-intensity - short duration
Point 2 is the best for fat burning, however it will depend on your level where you are at on how much you can handle. Wherever you start make sure you are progressing and you work at it bit by bit.
Here is a simple way to decide which one you will do and how to progress:
Frequency: how many cardiovascular sessions per week eg. 3-5 per week.
Intensity: this will be your low-intensity or high intensity choice based on your current level and remember to progress.
Type: choose the type of cardiovascular activity you are going to do for example: Walk Jog, Run, Ride a bike, skipping, Rowing, cross trainer, stairs
Time: how long you go for eg. low-intensity - 45-60mins, high-intensity - 15-25mins
Good Luck and Get started today!
