Cardio Workout – 17/03/12

 

 

 

 

 

 

Heres a new cardio workout for you all to complete this week. It will help burn extra calories, get rid of more fat and increase your metabolism which will help you achieve better results at the end of the month….

Interval Training:

30 seconds Walk
60
 seconds Run (70-80% of your sprint speed)
5 Burpees

Repeat this pattern for 30 minutes.

 

During the 60 seconds run you should push yourself so that you are out of breath. Your 0body will start to build up lactic acid because of a lack of oxygen to the muscles. But during your 30 seconds rest period your heart and lungs will work together to break this lactic acid down. The Burpees will help tone your thighs and glutes as well as challenging your core stability, plus it will burn extra calories!

It’s thought that by performing high intensity intervals that produce lactic acid, the body adapts and burns lactic acid more efficiently during exercise. This means you can exercise at a higher intensity for a longer period of time before fatigue or pain slows them down.

So, in simple terms you will increase your endurance and stamina by doing this interval training workout. Then when it comes to boot camp you will be able to last longer and push yourself harder, which will allow you to burn more calories and lose more inches!

 

Enjoy your workout!
