I get a significant amount of junk emails, some of which I actually chose to receive. I look forward to those emails, especially the ones that come from the American Council on Exercise. They almost always provide links to interesting articles—the occasional video, too.
I'd like to share one of those videos with you today. It's all about cardio, and how to get the most out of your cardio workouts. There are, in fact, a few things we're doing wrong. Take a look:
Eat before you hit your favorite cardio machine! Choose healthy carbs, which you'll ultimately need to fuel your efforts.
Don't use hand weights of any kind while walking and running. It really isnt' doing you any good. In fact, it might even be harming you. Go for the weighted vest if you really feel the need.
Switch it, change it..rearrange it. Never do the same cardio blast every time you need a workout. Your body, like your brain, will get bored.
And now, it's Friday. Baby and I are (yes, again) headed to the beach. I can't wait to actually, physically take this child to the beach for the first time. Bring on the sunscreen!
Question: How do you get the most out of your cardio routine?
