I’ve never been great about staying motivated on cardio machines, which is why I prefer running outside or swimming at the beach. Although I dread the burn of HIIT workouts, they’re still more appealing to me than running on a machine for an hour. This video goes through some basic moves that can easily be repeated through for a longer workout.
When I don’t have a healthy source of carbs to fuel a longer cardio workout (more than 30 minutes), I can definitely feel it. Here’s where quality is super important. Whole grains and sweet potatoes are my trusted sources. This recipe for a hash includes some healthy proteins too for a well-rounded meal.
It’s not possible to reduce fat in one area alone, it’s a combination of a calorie deficit and some cardio that helps lean the body by reducing overall body fat. The first place I notice any fat loss is definitely in my legs, which is why trying on pants and shorts in smaller size is an effective way for me to track my progress. I love the bohemian styles that are trending right now.
What kind of cardio do you find most effective for your goals?
