Cardio for Fitness

Posted on June 1st, 2010 by Mic in Female Fitness Resources

Many fitness models spend hours on the cardio machines in

the hope that the cardio will lead to supreme fitness. 

Usually this isn’t the case. 

Now don’t get me wrong.  Doing cardio for 1-2 hours a day will definitely burn some body fat. 

After all, most experts say you need to do at least 20-30

minutes a day just to get into the fat burning zone. 

So that means the first 20-30 minutes is just a warm up

basically.  Then whatever time you spend after that is the fat

burning zone. 

The problem with this is that it is not very efficient.  There are

several other things you could be doing to get into a fat burning

zone in a few minutes, not 20 to 30.

The other problem with long term cardio for fitness is that once

you stop the fat burning stops. 

You get absolutely no after burn effect. 

The after burn, which with some exercises can last 48 hours or

more, is what you are really after.  And it is much more

efficient. 

In just a matter of minutes you can burn way more calories and

body fat than you can by doing 1-2 hours of cardio. 

Then you will have more time for family and friends.  Which will

be a lot more fun than grinding it out on the cardio machines. 

Tomorrow we will look at a way to really change your cardio

into a fitness machine.
