Cardio training can best be done when you incorporate a good alternating of low-intensity, medium-intensity and high-intensity routines.

High-intensity cardio routines involve exercise activities done in at high speed, in alternate to medium to slow activities and all done over a short duration. For instance, running for 2 minutes and slowly toning down the speed to a walk for the next couples of minutes, with the alternation done in a short 30-minute time frame.

To prevent overtraining which can lead to inconsistent exercises routines and injuries, the high intensity cardio routine must be done in the given interval of speed.

Moderate-intensity cardio workouts, puts you at a greater ease when it comes to performing the routines. Also, these moderate routines do a good break at the more rigid high-intensity ones, so does away more risk on injuries.

Moderate intensity cardio exercises can be a 45-minute fast-paced walking or a 45-minute swim. As you do these routines and do them in good moderation, there is a lot of chance that you perform them well, so you can get the more from what you do.

Low-intensity exercises give you the utmost ease and when done regularly and efficiently, will allow you to reap greater rewards at what you are aiming. As you can be in a lot of comfort, doing for these types of routines won’t tire you, so you can stand to do them for a longer duration. This way you are at a better position in burning more fats.

The metabolism of fat to fuel requires a body mechanism which can only be triggered when you are moving in a consistent pace for long periods. Low-intensity exercises are mostly the normal thing you can do each day, like a hike, an afternoon walk with your dog or when you tend to daily chores and errands, so you won’t actually need cardio machines for these ones.

Even when low-intensity exercise gets you to burn fat, it should be in combination with medium- and high-intensity exercises as these are also the only way you get to consume carbs. The calories from fat and carbs you burn in opposite to that which you invite into your system, mainly defines how you will do in your pound-shedding scheme.

When it comes to cardio machines, they are always reliable workout stuff especially when the outdoors can’t be available to you. They put you on the action so you tend not to lose out on your routines. For instance the treadmill and the elliptical machine can always cover for the jogs, the runs and the walks.

They can be available to you from the gym, or even you can buy one if you have adequate cash and floor space in the house.

However, a good breath each time you work out does you so much, that is why the outdoors must be your top choice for the work-out venue. Plus, the sights you can see each time, will keep you away from boredom.
