Three Ways to Enhance Your Cardio

1. Long, Slow Distance

This should be your starting point when it comes to burning fat with cardio. Low-intensity, long distance cardio workout condition your body in a particular way and really get your body burning fat. This is not just a matter of a calorie burn – at low-to-moderate intensity, your body will kick into fat burning mode after 20-30 minutes.

The other benefit of this approach is that you’ll train your muscles to work for longer periods of time, and this can help improve a number of other aspects of your workout (even your weight training).

How long you need to do it:
Minimum of 45 minutes, up to 1 hour

Total calories burned:
150 to 240 (about 4 per minute)

 2. Moderate Tempo Workouts

This is the in-between approach to cardio that also burns a lot of calories, but really shifts your metabolism into carb-burning mode. You’ll still burn off some fat, and you’ll also burn off a lot of those extra calories you may have had that morning or the night before.

This type of cardio is important for a lot of reasons, particularly your cardiovascular health and how efficiently you use oxygen. Training your body at a moderate intensity, where you’re breathing hard but steady, will also help improve other facets of your workout program, improving your overall fitness.

How long you need to do it:
Minimum 20 minutes, up to 30 minute

Total calories burned:
130 to 200 (about 6-7 per minute)

3. High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)

This is the one that’s really all the rage lately, and for a really good reason. High intensity interval training, or HIIT for short, involves engaging in short bursts of intense exercises with either low-intensity exercises or complete rest in between. Essentially, you want to alternate your body between high and low intensity relatively quickly—and never long enough to let your heart rate slow down.

Not only do you burn a ton of calories doing HIIT, but you also condition your muscles at the same time. This means you’ll be burning calories and fat for hours afterwards, and over time, you’ll actually boost your resting metabolic rate by strengthening your lean muscle mass.

You really can’t go wrong with HIIT, and regardless of your fitness level, it can easily be incorporated into your current workout program. Even 10 minutes of HIIT a few days a week can totally transform your fitness level and potential at the gym.

How long you need to do it:
Minimum 10 minutes, up to 20 or 30 minutes (depending on fitness level)

Total calories burned:
80 to 200 or more (about 8-10 per minute)
