Why Do Cardio Exercise?

Posted Jun 17 2009 6:05pm
Why do cardio? Get the right answer and your fat loss frustrations will end!

The goal for cardio exercise should be to improve heart health (and overall health) and blast the body fat. And, don’t let your cardio exercise cause you to lose muscle mass! I have seen too many people lose valuable muscle mass while doing too many long, boring cardio sessions of 60 to 90 minutes! Personally, I don’t have the time (or patience) to devote to 3-4 sessions a week of lengthy cardio!

The take home lesson is this: don’t waste time with lengthy cardio sessions and you will burn fat and spend more time building muscle mass.

And, you don't need a treadmill or elliptical machine to do cardio exercise! All you need is 20 minutes and an activity that you ENJOY doing!

I personally use a variety of short, intense fat-burning cardio routines that won’t eat away at my muscle mass. Using variety will keep your body from adapting to the same cardio workout week after week. It will also keep you from getting bored with your cardio!

Get your 20-minute fat burning cardio workouts and start your summer workouts the right way!
