I want you to choose 3 different cardio activities that will allow you to keep your heart rate in the fat burning zone throughout the duration of the workout. For this program, every cardio workout will be 30 minutes in duration.
Some good cardio activities that allow you to keep your heart rate within the fat burning zone for the entire workout are listed below:
Stair Climber Machine
Recumbent Exercise Bike
Sled Pulling Light Weight
Sled Pushing Light Weight
Wheelbarrow Light Weight
Walking with Weight
P90 Cardio Workouts
Choose 3 different activities… those activities will be done during Cardio Workout A, Cardio Workout B, and Cardio Workout C, respectively. Write them in your log book:
Cardio Workout A =
Cardio Workout B =
Cardio Workout C =
You can play any sports (they are much tougher to keep your heart rate in target zone) but keep them limited to 30 minutes. You shouldn’t be doing any activity for multiple hours while you are trying to build muscle and strength. You’ll put a lot more stress on your body, and you’ll burn many calories. This will make it much tougher to build muscle.
During your cardio workouts, I want you to focus in on getting better and working harder during these workouts. Remember your goals during this time and understand that good cardio workouts help you reach your goals.
You can choose any cardio activities you want as long as that activity allows you to stay within your fat burning heart rate zone. Some activities might be too intense for you to stay within the correct heart rate zone. This depends on you and your current fitness and conditioning levels. So test them out and see what works for you best.
