Make Your Cardio Fun
April 23, 2006
Being bored is not fun and it`s even worse when you know that you have
another thirty minutes left on the treadmill. The minutes seem to go by like
seconds and you hit the stop button because you simply cannot go on any
longer. So what happened? Why does the cardio have to be so boring? This article is going to give you alternatives to the good ole treadmill and hopefully give you enough inspiration to finish your workout.
The first alternative to simple cardio is by the use of workout videos. Workout videos are perfect for those who don`t have a gym membership and are
acceptable because of their workout in your own living room. Workout videos
are also perfect for motivation because the instructor pushes you all the
way to completion. Another benefit of having this instructor on your TV is
that you get expert guidance in helping you achieve your goals.
Another great alternative to cardio is by the use of a jump rope. The
cardio benefits of jumping rope are tremendous because of its calorie
burning effect in such a short amount of time. Jump roping can burn up to
1,000 calories per hour, making it one of the most effecient workouts
possible. Jump roping is fun, easy to learn, inexpensive, great for kids,
portable, and in my opinion, the best way to make your cardio workout fun.
Heavy bag training is not just for boxers anymore. On top of the great
cardio workout that you are getting, heavy bag training also improves your
self-defense skills. Heavy bag training also reduces stress, works your
muscles, and helps improve hand-eye-coordination. Fitness manufacturers
continue to develop new products aimed towards the fighting athlete. As new
products are being developed, old training equipment such as the heavy bag
are often forgotten.
Now that you`ve learned three great alternatives to dull cardio
routines, you should now be able to achieve your fat loss goals much easier.
Don`t over-do your cardio and never go over an hour of continuous work due
to chances of overtraining. Take things one day at a time and reap the benefits at a later time. Until next time, later!
