HOW TO GET THE ULTIMATE PHYSIQUE (CARDIO WORKOUT).
One of the biggest questions in the fitness industry is: Should I do cardio?
The answer: Yes.
Although you can get a ripped body without doing any cardio, doing it will only help you achieve that body you want much faster. It will also increment your ability to go longer in your strength workouts which will make you stronger and more muscular in the long run. Unless you want to put 10+ pounds of muscle in the fastest amount then you should be doing cardio at least once a week.
Now, you may be wondering: What is the best type of cardio?
There are many forms of cardio, however, most of them fall into two categories: Steady pace cardio or High intensity cardio (As well as HIIT). Even though your body will use only fat as energy when doing steady pace cardio while HIIT will use more of your glycogen storages, doing high intensity cardio has been shown to burn more overall calories and leave your body with a ”After Burn” effect for about 48h. In short, HIIT cardio has been shown to be more effective for fat loss than regular steady pace cardio.
So, what exactly is HIIT?
It stand for High intensity interval training. The execution consist on getting your heart rate as high as possible for a period of time, then completely rest for a shorter period of time and repeat the cycle. Finally, a great addition to this would be performing exercises that also work your strength and/or power. In the following video you will be able to see a great example of a Killer HIIT workout that will leave you tired (But burning fat) for days! Enjoy 😉
