My Fitness Journey, Lesson Four

Cardio is King

What is your cardio routine? Are you wasting time on an elliptical? Are you doing fasted cardio? Do you know what you are doing? 

Be more efficient with your time, every time, by jumping on a different machine.

Learn to LOVE the stair master. This workout is a beautiful combination of a leg workout and an intense cardio workout that will burn close to 500 calories in about 35 minutes. Yep, it's an efficient workout and you won't have to spend hours at the gym.

Fasted cardio in the morning before you eat breakfast is also a great key to fat loss. Start your day off on the right foot and do your body a huge favor at the same time by doing fasted cardio. Your metabolism will kick into high gear all day and you will feel so much better about yourself for doing it. Just from working out in the morning, I am much more disciplined throughout the day because I don't want to negate what I have already done. Hopefully this will work for you too!

My advice is to mix up your cardio routine by running (either outside or on the treadmill), biking, doing the stair mill, boxing or anything else you enjoy. Just don't waste your time on the elliptical or machine that makes you look like you are marching like a German soldier. By switching your cardio routine and doing it daily, you will notice a major change.
