Bikini Bootcamp Challenge Day 2: Cardio Exercise
Welcome to day 2 of the Bikini Bootcamp Challenge!
If you want to lose it, you have to move it!
It's time to move! Losing weight requires almost an hour of moderate exercise daily.
The most effective way is through cardio and strength training.
Cardio burns the most calories so it is ideal for weight loss. However, you must also include a few hours of strength training during the week, to build muscle which in turns burns fat.
If you are just beginning your workout regimen, pace yourself. Do not do too much too soon. Work your way up to avoid injury.
A good way to increase the intensity of your workouts and to get maximum calorie burn is to do interval training. This is when you do brief moments of high intensity movements, followed by slower paced movements, repeating that pattern throughout your workout.
Commit to doing cardio:
Whatever your lifestyle or circumstance, there is a cardio workout for you.
- If you have a gym membership, you can take advantage of all the cardio machines and classes available.
- If you workout at home, you can jump rope, do jumping jacks, run up and down the stairs, dance in your living room or do a cardio fitness DVD.
- If you prefer the outdoors, you can walk, run, swim, bike, hike, or go climbing. The possibilities are endless.
- Any movement can be a cardio workout as long as there is enough intensity to it.
