I have to laugh whenever a client asks me, “Aren’t we going to do cardio?” If you’re breathing hard and covered in sweat after our session, guess what? You just did cardio!
Despite what equipment manufacturers might have you think, you don’t need a treadmill, stationary bike, or elliptical machine to do cardio.
All that matters is keeping your heart-rate in the correct zone for your goals, and that can be achieved with minimal equipment… or body-weight exercises alone!
Interested in cranking up your metabolism, burning calories, and getting in good cardiovascular shape? Let’s talk about HIIT.
High Intensity Interval Training, or HIIT, is a favorite trick of many athletes, because it get faster results than steady-state cardio. What’s more, it can be accomplished in a very small space, with no equipment other than a timer.
Unfortunately, many people who try HIIT choose their rest-work intervals without knowing why. If you have a fat-burning goal, your timing should be different than if you have a muscle-building goal, and so on. I highly recommend checking in with a trainer who can design a HIIT routine customized to your goals, body, and space.
