Trying to get back into the gym after a long summer, vacation, holiday or break from the gym all-together can be a daunting task. The average person will hop on a treadmill, get bored after 5 minutes, winded after 10, and quit after 15. The only things you end up with are sore joints, frustration, and an ongoing hate for anything related to cardio.
The importance and benefits of doing cardio are clear and in our faces everyday, but unfortunately many people don’t know what constitutes as effective cardio. Gone is the day that you could run around town for a couple of miles and “be healthy” or look “fit”. Today’s “fit” man needs to be strong, fast, and athletic. An hour on the elliptical, a walk on a super inclined treadmill, or a 10-mile jog in your neighborhood will not help you attain these qualities. A successful cardio routine involves some key elements that are not in most programs.
Stick with these basics during your next cardio routine, follow these tips, and bring your fitness to new heights.
