So many people get lost in the confusion and misinformation surrounding the world of cardio training. And I don’t blame them. It seems that every day, I read yet another article from some so-called weight loss “guru” that shares a different opinion on this issue. Should you do high intensity interval training (ie HIIT) or slow, steady-state cardio? How about both? Or, should you do your cardio first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, or should you get some nutrition flowing through your system first? These and so many other questions plague the minds of would-be fat burners who just want to get a good workout in and get back to their life.
Speaking of which…
Since the blog has been a little quiet this month, I wanted to post a quick announcement today that I had a guest article published at the highly-esteemed Burn The Fat Blog by Tom Venuto. I’ve written a lot of articles for Tom’s fat loss support community, the Burn The Fat Inner Circle, but this is the first time I’ve landed a spot on the blog, and I’m pretty excited! My article is titled 8 Reasons Your Cardio Workouts Aren’t Working, and you can read the full text here.
Here’s how it starts…
So, you’ve started doing cardio workouts to burn some fat, tighten up, and get in shape. Perhaps you’ve started going for a walk each morning or a run on your lunch break. Or, maybe you began using the elliptical, stairclimber, or rower at the gym. Maybe you’ve joined a class. But no matter what you do, you’re not seeing the results you want, and you’re not sure why. Well, here are eight reasons why your cardio workouts may not be working and what you should do about it. – John Sifferman, Source.
In my experience, things are much simpler than we make them out to be, especially when you base your training off of principles instead of the next fad – or some weird trick or secret training strategy that gets passed around the Internet from time to time.
So, if you’re the type of person who likes to base your exercise program off of logic, reason, and science, instead of being swayed by the latest popular opinion, AND you want to make sure you’re not making any big mistakes with your cardio training, then you can read my article about the eight strategies to maximize the effectiveness of your cardio workouts at the Burn The Fat blog here: 8 Reasons Your Cardio Workouts Aren’t Working.
