You know that cardiovascular routines are unnecessary when it comes to losing weight – right? You need to lose all your memories of that junk people say about getting into cardio fat-burn zones and other meaningless babble. You must instead remember that what you eat has the most to do with your program. Without changing your eating habits, nothing – including cardio – will help you. That’s not to say that cardio will work: it won’t. An eight week evaluation of cardio workouts has recently proven that you won’t lose weight with traditional cardio.
With a traditional cardiovascular routine, you are wasting your life away with moves that aren’t benefiting you at all. You are going to be better off by using interval style cardio. This together with diet and resistance training will help you get going.
This is a lot better than overdoing traditional cardio in desperate attempts to boost weight loss. Cardio with intervals can actually help you. Before I continue, let me tell you of an email I got. This was from a woman who worked an 8-hour regimen of cardiovascular exercises every week.
With all this effort the lady was not losing, fat, or anything else. The only thing she was losing was patience.
This woman was so desperate that she was planning on adding even more time in the gym doing traditional aerobics in her effort to lose some weight. I had to warn her that she was already overdoing it. You can’t perform all that repetitive motion and get away with it.
I got another one from a person who was eating a lot of vegetable content, but she wasn’t getting enough calories to maintain her metabolism. She addded nuts to her diet and now she is losing weight again.
Increased activity and reduced diet are concepts that are applied to generally, and to people who aren’t doing things right. You have to resist those urges and start working toward your goals with mechanisms that have been proven.
