The secret to fat loss is the right type of cardiovascular exercise. I'm going to show you cardio exercises, cardio equipment, and give you access to cardio workouts that are going to kick start fat loss for you.
You'll be able to start with the level 1 cardio workouts and progress through each of the levels. As you do so, you'll begin to feel much better and look much better too! Work hard on these cardio workouts, and you'll be very excited to see the results.
Any type of activity that raises your heart rate to the intended target heart rate is a good cardio exercise. Some activities may be too much if you're targeting a lower heart rate while some may not be enough if you're targeting a high heart rate. For example, running stairs is usually going to be too much for a beginner to exercise.
As you can see, there are a huge number of cardio exercises you can do. I highly recommend switching between cardio exercises and activities as often as possible. This keeps fat loss going, keeps you happy, and makes your body work harder.
There's a huge selection of cardio equipment available. Many gyms have this equipment readily available while others do not. If you have a home gym, you might want to get a few different pieces of equipment but make sure you have the room and that it makes sense for your gym.

You can do many different cardio activities without any cardio equipment but many activities do require some type of equipment.
I've created several different levels of cardio workouts that you can use to increase fat loss. Making progress through each of these workouts will help keep cardio fun for you and increase the amount of body fat you are burning.
You can start with the level 1 cardio workouts and continue to make progress from there.
Level 1: Low Intensity Fat Burning Workouts
Low intensity cardio is great for burning fat but it's also great for beginners who don't have the capacity to do much cardiovascular exercise at this time.
1.1 Low Intensity 2/3/4 Fat Loss Workout
1.2 Low Intensity AM/PM 4/6/8 Fat Loss Workout
1.3 Low Intensity Before & After Fat Loss Workout
1.4 Low Intensity Rotational Fat Loss Workout
Low intensity cardio can be used during muscle building programs to help increase fat loss but not burn any muscle during the actual cardio workouts.
Level 2: Medium Intensity Fat Burning Workouts
Medium intensity cardio is one of my favorite ways to burn body fat quickly. If you stay in medium intensity target heart rate zone, you'll be working very hard and burning lots of body fat every workout.
1.1 Medium Intensity 2/3/4 Fat Loss Workout
1.2 Medium Intensity AM/PM 4/6/8 Fat Loss Workout
1.3 Medium Intensity Before & After Fat Loss Workout
1.4 Medium Intensity Rotational Fat Loss Workout
If you can handle medium intensity cardio and want to burn fat fast, I highly recommend the use of these level 2 fat loss workouts.
Level 3: High Intensity Fat Burning Workouts
High intensity exercise cannot continue for long periods of time just because the human body can't go all out for long periods of time. To combat this, you will really push your body for short periods of time, then lower intensity to actively rest, push hard again, actively rest, and repeat.
1.1 High Intensity 2/3/4 Fat Loss Workout
1.2 High Intensity AM/PM 4/6/8 Fat Loss Workout
1.3 High Intensity Before & After Fat Loss Workout
1.4 High Intensity Rotational Fat Loss Workout
You need to be able to handle level 2 workouts well before moving to level 3 workouts. Level 3 workouts can be very intense so use caution.
Level 4: Conditioning Workouts for Increased Fat Loss
If you want to improve your overall fitness level even more, you can move up to level 4 workouts. These workouts are very intense but will help you improve your conditioning greatly.
4.1 Body Weight 1X Conditioning Workout
4.2 Body Weight 2X Conditioning Workout
4.3 Body Weight 3X Conditioning Workout
These workouts will not only increase fat loss but they will also lead to you being able to build more muscle by increasing your overall work capacity. When you are able to increase the amount of volume in your weight lifting workouts and continue to recover properly, your results will be amazing.
