Lose Fat with Cardio done RIGHT!

Lately everyone has been asking me, "what is the best type of cardio to lose body fat?"

The answer is Interval Cardio Training!

Interval Cardio Next Level Style is set up in "levels", oh yeah! you like that snazzy play on words? I know I'm a genius right? ;-)

By "Levels" I mean timed intervals varying in intensity. The best example would be:

level 1= go 1 minute as hard as you can (on an intensity scale that would = a 9 or 10)
level 2= 1 minute of moderate intensity ( like a 5 or 6 on the same scale)
level 3= 1 minute of light intensity ( 2 or 3 on the scale= walk)

These 3 levels make up a "round", you should begin by doing at least 3-4 rounds.

This brand of cardio training should be done either post-strength training or on your "off" days. By the way you should definitely be strength training total body at least 3 days a week!

Make sure to include a 5 minute steady state warm up before attempting this more difficult cardio routine! Steady state means staying at the same speed and intensity for the entire duration of the warm up.

Next Level Interval Cardio for Fat Loss can be done in a variety of ways, tread mill, eliptical, track, running hills, running sprints, etc. etc. etc.

Follow the Next Level Motto of "break a good sweat every day" and you will find yourself beach ready in no time!

Now lets take your Fat Loss to the NEXT LEVEL!

Yours In Fitness,
