GET YOUR HEART & BODY IN SHAPE WITH SIDHU FITNESS AT HOME PERSONAL TRAINING.
Cardio with Sidhu Fitness
Whether you are looking to reduce stress levels or burn a lot of calories quickly, your Sidhu Fitness Personal Trainer knows just what to do to get heart rate going. Cardiovascular fitness is all about your heart and lungs’ ability to supply oxygen-rich blood to the muscles you are using and the muscles’ ability to use that oxygen to produce energy for your workout.
Sustained physical activity is the key to reaping the benefits of cardio. Cardiovascular exercise is perfect for working towards weight loss and fat burning goals by helping you burn more calories than you take in.
Some examples of cardio workouts include:
HIIT (high-intensity interval training)
Regular exercise conditions the heart to pump blood through the body more efficiently. Even if your goal isn’t to lose weight, there are still an array of health benefits to maintaining a cardio fitness regimen.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT CARDIO ACTIVITIES FOR YOU.
Choosing the right cardiovascular exercise for you is important, regardless of whether you want to lose weight, build muscle, or increase endurance. Everyone has different fitness goals, which is why it is important to have a variety of tools at your disposal to assist you in increasing your cardiovascular endurance and improve your overall health.
Circuit training is both aerobic and anaerobic exercise, being alternated to maximize your workout efforts. An example of this kind of training, would be jogging for five minutes, followed by two minutes of sit-ups or push-ups. Circuit training can also be used in groups, where you run or jog to a certain point and perform the allocated exercise together. This can be great for team building and alleviating boredom. This kind of training is also useful when you don’t have much time to work out, as it provides both cardio and strength training in one.
Cross training involves performing multiple types of cardio. You will likely use more than one type of equipment in a single workout session. For example, you might exercise for 10 minutes on a stair stepper, followed by another 10 minutes on a treadmill. Another option would be using a different piece of equipment each day, or by changing the type of cardiovascular exercise you do every few weeks. Trainers often recommend cross training because it can reduce the risk of injury, increases overall performance and is great for reducing boredom.
Long Slow Distance Cardio
Long slow distance cardio, also known as continuous training or steady state cardio, involves performing aerobic exercise at a steady pace for a set period of time without a break. For example, walking, jogging or cycling for a period of 20 to 40 minutes. Best suited for those just starting out on their fitness journey, long slow distance cardio allows you to work at your own pace and gradually increase the duration of your workout as your fitness levels improve. It is also usually suitable for those who are returning to exercise after suffering an injury.
High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)
High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) involves performing specific aerobic activities at high intensity levels for a short period of time, followed by a rest period that varies in length. During the rest period, you perform activities at a much slower pace to allow your body time to recover. HIIT training can be used by people of all fitness levels, because you can start with short bursts of activity and increase the duration of your intensive exercise and add more sets to your workout as you progress. HIIT sessions are ideal if you are training for an athletic competition and help improve glucose metabolism and speed up the fat-burning process.
Which activity is most suitable for you?
There are advantages and disadvantages to each of these types of activities. As such, you may discover that the type of cardio that’s best for you, changes as your overall fitness level increases. Don’t be afraid to try different things, as changing things up can help you remain committed and set higher goals for yourself.
