How To Do Cardio Right?
With my 6-week challenge release, I’ve been writing more cardio workouts than I have in a while.
My goal with these cardio workouts isn’t to make it as hard as possible or even burn a ton of calories.
But, to build the aerobic system
When you have aerobic fitness and health
-You have a greater chance of living longer
-Better heart health and circulation
-Better tolerance for dealing with shit in your life.
But, the thing with this type of training is it can be kinda boring, like going on an elliptical and pedaling for 30 minutes.
I wanted to program funner ways, while still hitting this system.
Here is one I did for a client this week, the goal is still to keep the HR at a low to moderate rate for 20-30 minutes.
Think Heart rate between 120-150
- Backward sled drag 100 feet
- light KB Swing 25
- Side lunges 10/ side
- Rest 60 sec
Seated banded abductions
Banded leg curls
set 1 40 set 2 set 3 30 set 4 10
We were able to train the aerobic system, while the workout had the feel of a killer leg workout.
Feel free to steal this and give it a try.
If you are interested in my 6-week Challenge, where we will hit workouts like this 3x a week along with 3 strength sessions.
