8/21/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Saturday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 22. August 2013 21:11

There are some conflicting opinions about high-intensity cardio workouts vs. slow-and-steady cardio.  The issue surrounds whether one type will show you the best/fastest results.

My belief (as I’ve stated about a lot of different workout and eating topics) is that moderation and good common sense goes a long way!  I believe that both types (high-intensity, steady) benefit your health/physique results in different ways.

Low intensity, longer duration training can build endurance and is actually a highly effective method for weight loss which seems counter intuitive).

High endurance cardio, is good at shocking your system, for quick results, but should only be done twice a week, or you run a risk of over training plateau’s or injury.

Before you start high intensity workouts, you should have a base of exercise work.  This allows your training to be safe.  In other words, don’t begin high intensity training without having been in the ‘workout game’ for a while (and getting your doctor’s approval if you’ve had issues).
