Why do your cardio twice a week?

Which type of cardio should you do for maximum weight loss and fitness? Firstly let’s look at the 2 types of cardio – slow vs. high intensity interval training.

Slow is exactly that – continuously, and “slow” enough that you can hold a conversation.

H.I.I.T. are intervals that vary between “slow” and 100%. For example, you could perform 30 seconds easy followed by a 30 second sprint. This could be done however you like – running, swimming, stationary bike, skipping etc etc


So, Which Is Best?

The only time to do slow cardio is first thing in the morning and immediately after weight training (because you ARE weight training, right?)
We do this because your regular fuel tank is low, so it will force your body to tap into your “fat tank”. Does it work? Yes.

The only time to do H.I.I.T is on a session on it’s own, i.e. not combined with resistance training. Why? If you do it after weights, you’ll reverse your gains. If you do it first thing in the morning – before eating – you’ll go catabolic (your body will “eat” your body). Does it work? Yes.

A combination of the two is needed for sustainable fat-loss and fitness. Chat soon. If you enjoyed this post, make sure you subscribe to my RSS feed!
