Then it’s a good thing nobody said that you should never do cardio. But the post I addressed was instructing people to “Do a lot of cardio exercises” because strength-training doesn’t help you lose body fat, it apparently just “pushes the fat, making you look bigger,” and that’s bullshit.Comments
Do a lot of cardio exercises!
By doing this, your muscles will show since your fat is burning faster. Of friend of mine told me that if you just work out your muscles (or strength training over cardio), your muscles will just push your fat, making you look bigger. Good luck!
Except strength training burns calories as well. And muscles burn more calories at rest than body fat does, so even if you “just work your muscles,” you’ll likely see progress. Cardio is mainly important for cardiovascular health and more endurance.
I don’t. I haven’t made any yoga-based workouts since the poses are hard to describe. But I don’t do as much cardio as people think they should do (which is more than they really need). I used to do Zumba 2-4 nights a week until the instructor stopped teaching at my gym, but most of my cardio is walking, jogging, and (mainly) dancing. Not including dance classes, I do maybe 2 or 3 hours of cardio a week.Comments Comments
Always do your weight-lifting before any long or extreme cardio. Doing cardio exhausts you and your muscles, which makes it more likely that you’ll lift with improper form and injure yourself.
That said, maybe. I can’t tell you if you’ll lose weight. You might not be eating right/enough, you might be overtraining, you might be at your body’s ideal weight, etc. So, maybe.Comments
Lower Body Blast: a 30 minute cardio strength routine!
This is one of my favorite workouts because I can do it from my dorm room at any time! Between being home for the Thanksgiving holiday and impending finals it’s really helpful to have a great on the go workout I can do anywhere at any time! One thing that makes it so effective is that it combines intensifying cardio with body-weight based strength moves. This is great when the weather is freezing, snowy or rainy and you can’t (or don’t want to) go outside!

High Intensity Interval Training in the comfort of your home! Do the entire thing twice through, with a two-minute rest between sets, and push yourself hard during the non-marching sections.
A simpler, shorter cardio workout for people who are new to fitness.
I suggest between 30-60 minutes of high-intensity cardio two or three times a week and 30-90 minutes of low-intensity cardio three times a week.Comments
Another cardio workout you can do at home!
