The cardio training in this programme is simple and easy to perform, and though it may be a bit harder work than the long/slow approach, it will bring far greater benefits to your fitness, health, and weight loss goals.
To begin with, the main focus should be on simply getting moving three times a week for around 20-30 minutes at a time. If done correctly, cardio training can be an effective way to improve your fitness and health. It can also be a great way to lose body fat and improve body composition. However, aerobic exercise alone is not the way forward to improve your health and fitness. It doesn’t address the critical importance of strength, power, flexibility, maintenance of muscle, and neural function, which are all qualities that, if compromised, will contribute to a poorer functioning of our cardiovascular system and the body as a whole.
For the best results, aerobic exercise should be combined with whole body resistance training and movement.
