When it comes to cardio, people have lots of questions. I get questions like: how long should I do cardio? How often? How many days? I can go on and on with questions. I am going to answer all your questions and make it nice and easy for you to remember. All you have to remember is F-I-T-T. There is a formula to this fit game.
F- Frequency: How often should I workout? You should work out consistently 3-5 times a week.
I-Intensity: How hard should I go? That depends on your fitness level, you want to hit your Target Heart Rate range. You can have a fancy gadget to tell you when you are in your THR range but I am going to tell you a easy way you can tell you are in the zone, no equipment needed. If you are able to hold a conversation, you are NOT in the zone. If you are unable to hold a conversation easily, you are breathing hard, and unable to talk smoothly you are If you are IN the zone.
T-Time: How long do I have to workout? If you are beginner start off with 10-15 minutes a day. Your goal is to work up to 20-30 minutes 3 times a week.
T-Type: Find what you like, if you enjoy walking, walk just make sure you are applying the FITT formula.
The key to cardio is to find something you enjoy doing and apply the FITT formula. If you don’t enjoy it you will not stick with it. You now know the formula to this fit game, get out and burn those calories, make it fun!
