Get ready for your weekly Cardio kick. This one will get the job done, whether you are training for a marathon or just simply want to take your endurance to the next level, try this one on for size. It is SLOWLY becoming one of my favorite cardio routines. Remember, give your self time to progress. Don’t try to eat the entire elephant at once. Each time you workout, try to push yourself just one step outside of your comfort zone. This will keep you consistently progressing and from plateauing in your fitness.
Cardio accomplishes two things. A. It is the fastest most efficient way (besides food) to burn fat especially in our mid sections. And 2. It keeps our heart nice and healthy & your endurance levels high. The goal each day is the hold your target heart rate between 15-30 min at a time. When you reach that, you know you are getting into your fittest zone. Find your target heart rate by using the tips of your first two fingers (not your thumb) to press lightly over the blood vessels on your wrist. Count your pulse for 10 seconds and multiply by 6 to find your beats per minute. You want to stay between 50 percent to 85 percent of your maximum heart rate. This range is your target heart rate. Now go kill it!
Thanks for working out with me! See ya next week!
