Time to change things up. The average person does not have time to log 40+ miles a week. Nor is it necessary unless those are your goals. If you don’t like long drawn out cardio- don’t do it! Slow and Steady DOES NOT win the race. How long have you been spending in the gym on machines? They all have a place and purpose but can be used sparingly. Are you doing cardio for one steady rate of time without changing any factors? You’re WASTING your time. You’re trading your calories in an inefficient way. Start creating a serious DEFECIT to see a loss in fat. You must start doing higher intensities of intervals and cardio bursts. If that means running a mile and including stairs or bleachers, do it. If that means 20 box jumps, and 1:00 of jump rope in between your weight routine, do it! Jump rope is one of my my favorite ways to get the heart rate up. Try it out! I got 2 at Sports Authority so I can always have one for a friend, $7.99 each. Challenge a buddy, see how many sets you can do in 30 minutes! You’re done for the day.
