We all know that exercise is important and so good for us, but it definitely isn’t always easy to fit into our busy schedules! Varsity Sports Training Facility is here to help out with that. People that don’t like cardio really seem to hate the monotony of it. They tend to just count down the seconds until this LONG, dull, continuous movement is finally over. By breaking up the routine into a series of intervals, it will not only keep your brain distracted with frequent changes, but you’ll get better results. The trick is to keep your brain into enjoying your cardio workout, rather than dreading it.
Your cardiovascular system (or cardiopulmonary system-lungs) is your heart, blood, and the huge network of blood vessels that supplies fuel, oxygen, and nutrients to every tissue in your body. Getting this system strong and efficient will give you more energy on a daily basis and make an activity you do feel easier. It also protects you from the very real dangers of cardiovascular dieses.
So, the question that remains is:
“What is the best cardio workout exercise to burn fat?”
So, you have a better understanding which cardio workout exercises will help deliver the best weight loss without hindering muscle mass are:
Jump Rope: It is cheap, easy to do, increases foot speed, and burns a ton of calories. Jumping rope not only enhances your footwork, shoulder strength, and coordination, but also simulates sprinting, allowing you to burn as much as 400-500 calories in just 30 minutes. Best way to enjoy a jump rope is by doing intervals. (Unless you can jump for 30 minutes straight) Start as fast as you can for 1 minute, then take 20-30 second rest. Repeat until you’re done.
Battle Ropes: Offer an opportunity for very dynamic, explosive, effective cardio exercises that will deliver great results for your physique. Have you ever wondered what exercise burn the most stomach fat? Battle Ropes is your answer!
Burpee: The notorious Burpee exercise. One of the simplest exercises that can be done anywhere anytime. It will leave your heart thumping against your chest, lungs and every muscle completely exhausted. You can also try the Push-Up burpee instead. This will leave your body completely exhausted after a couple repetitions.
Mountain Climbers: These are similar to burpees and great for core strength, muscle coordination, agility and endurance. Try different types of mountain climbers for example the spider mountain climber is ideal if you need an exercise that targets your lower abdominal along with the obliques which are also referred to “love handles!”
Box Jump Squat: You go from a squat into a jump and land on an elevated surface where you go for the full range of motion and then you fall back to repeat the movement. The higher and more explosive you jump, the more muscle tissue that is activated.
Sprinting: It is simple, and it burns huge amounts of calories-when looking to shed weight. If you’re outside on a track, try sprinting a lap and then jog a lap. Keep repeating this for as long as you can. If you’re on a treadmill, do an all-out sprint for 20-30 seconds, then slow down and jog for a minute or so before repeating. It will sure keep your heart rate up!
Of course, some days it’s impossible to fit a 30-mintue workout, but I know anyone can fit a 10-miute Cardio Workout anywhere and anytime! No weights, no gym, no problem.
Try all these for 1 Minute (Moderate or Advanced):
Right Side Kick
Left Side Kick
Remember you can do burpees or Sprints all day every day, but if your diet is bad then your results are going to be the same-bad. So, remember, these powerful fat-burning cardio workout exercises will deliver great weight loss results, but over-training will not only lead to muscle loss but will also cause a weight loss plateau.
