What Kind Of Cardio Is Best?
- Sep 09, 2014
- Dr. Asa Andrew
This is a question that I get asked the most. There have been numerous studies done on cardiovascular exercise and its benefits. The different factors are time, duration, and type. The best cardio for ultimate fat loss is any type of exercise that is done at a higher level of intensity. So whether it’s the treadmill, the elliptical, bike, or jogging, the activity must be done in a vigorous manner. The benefits are increased when we exercise, but there are longer lasting benefits that we see afterwards as well. Our hormones are activated after a higher intensity workout that can activate our fat burning potential up to 48 hours after the activity. So consider alternating your cardio days with a resistance -training day (weights) for optimal results in building the sculpted body that you have been working toward.
