It is rare to find someone who does not realize the importance of cardio and aerobic exercises. People do it to lose weight, to gain weight and to keep a healthy body and the metabolism ticking in the right manner. Yet those of us who are doing cardio and aerobic exercises regularly, as part of our work out routine know how difficult it is to remain motivated. In the true sense of the word, the entire exercise schedule can become extremely boring and monotonous, once the initial thrill of starting some thing new fades out. And talk to any veteran, he would tell you that the initial excitement ends in a whimper, once you are one or two weeks old in the gym or wherever you are practicing the workouts. So, to get the most out of your cardio workouts and make the entire exercise routine fun and exciting, you need to remain focused as well as learn to take the routine not just like a routine but a time when you could have some fun too. Here are some tips to help you remain tuned during your cardio and aerobic workouts: - Change the routine.
One of my favorite topics; cardio. I love cardio. I am the cardio queen. If I can't burn fat and increase my oxygen levels in my blood, I don't even want to put on my workout tights. Last week I was so stressed over a project I wanted to run around the set screaming and stuffing truffles in my mouth at the same time. But I soon came to my senses for a brief moment and thought about the long-term effects of both of those actions. I would feel like an idiot for screaming and I hate being embarrassed. If I would have eaten those truffles I would start seeing dimples bubble up in the form of cellulite on my buns and thighs so I opted a more sane solution. I excused myself for an emergency appointment. That's right, an emergency! If I were physically bleeding, I would have had to leave and go for stitches and bandages. Well... I was emotionally bleeding and I had to stop the pain and do something with the wound right away. I hopped in my care and went to a private studio, threw on some tights and sneakers and hit the treadmill.
The hardest part of getting into good shape and staying there is motivation. Our inspiration to stay in shape changes with the seasons. We have holidays to consider, cold winter days, and all of those gadgets of convenience which keep us from maintaining a daily routine or exercise. However, we really should be wise about the way inactivity affects our bodies and our health. Diabetes, heart disease, and strokes are just a few of the medical conditions which can arise from idleness. But there is good news! Recent research has shown without any doubt that these affects can be stopped or reversed simply by switching from a sedentary lifestyle to a more active one. Exercise on its own, without making any particular change in your diet can reduce the risks of the diseases previously mentioned so by doing whatever you can to increase your motivation has to be of benefit to you. You could try listening to music whilst taking a run, or find some form of exercise which you like and enjoy doing and set aside a particular time of day to do these activities.
Ok... It has been written so much lately and it starts to feel like beating a dead horse... And I'm guilty of doing that too because I have written several articles about why aerobic or cardio exercises are not good for fat loss. So... is there really a good way to use aerobic exercises for fat loss? That is the million dollar question. I'm going to tell you about it today in this first part expose on interval aerobic training. And you will walk away from this lesson knowing more than most folks do about using the aerobic exercises the right way for fat loss. First of all, I believe interval aerobic training is superior to the constant, slow aerobic exercises that most people are doing now for several reasons. First, you get a better workout in a shorter amount of time. That makes sense because interval cardio demands quick pace with slow resting paces in-between. Secondly, interval training is less boring and more challenging which means you will more likely stick with the program rather than wimp out because quite frankly, I absolutely hate slow, plodding and boring exercises.

Skipping rope- Now this might not be easy for some but once it becomes a habit it's real fun and at the same time it burns a lot of calories real fast. You see if you skip a rope only 15-30 minutes a day you will never have to do any other workout ever because this is just very effective to help you shed a lot of weight. Swimming- Swimming is known to be one of the best and the most effective aerobic exercises which is a complete workout for your whole body. You see the good thing about swimming is that the longer you stay in water the more you have to workout as if you don't you might drown. Therefore this is one exercise which would keep you going even when you don't feel like it.
What is Aerobics really, and what can it do for you? Aerobics and aerobic exercise refer to the process of physical conditioning which is designed to improve respiration and circulation. The word itself means 'with oxygen'. Any exercise, such as running, swimming, biking, jogging, or even doing exercise videos in your home achieve this. What are the benefits of aerobics? First and foremost the improved circulation increases blood flow to your muscles. This causes them to consume more calories and also enables them to strengthen. Other benefits of improved circulation are myriad, but foremost is the fact that any healing your body can do must start with good blood flow. Sustained aerobic exercise for 30 minutes can burn as many as 300 calories. A healthy adult on a reasonable diet should consume (consult your physician before embarking on any diet) roughly 2000 calories. This means that daily exercise can decrease your calorie intake by 2100 every week, or have the effect of removing all of the calorie intake for one day.
Waist trimming exercises come in all shapes and forms, usually as twists and bends. But one of the best ways to reduce waist size is to do cardiovascular exercises. These exercises can help you to lose a lot of body fat and get a sexy and lean tummy. This article will describe 3 cardio waist reducing exercises. 1. Running - My personal favorite cardio workout, running, incorporates virtually every muscle group into each motion and it is a high intensity workout which can burn a lot of fat. One added benefit of running is that the stomach is naturally tucked in while you're doing it, so that the abs muscles are working with each step. The abs muscles are connected to the waist muscles, so this is indeed an excellent exercise to trim your waist. Make sure to run at various speeds as this works the body better and to do a little sprinting as this really gets the abs muscles hard. 2. Jumping rope - This is an exercise you can do at home and which burns a lot of calories in a very short time.
Usually fitness trainers and MDs recommend you do easy to medium effort cardio exerciese to prevent heart diseases or to lose fat. They would say something like this, do thirty to sixty minutes of constant rate aerobics three to five days a week. However, I would suggest that you throw that conventional thinking out the window before you become like those mindless robots you see on the treadmills at your health club... Instead, I think you should take in the recent scientific studies that show constant aerobic exercises is NOT the best exercise it is made out to be. You would have to understand that the human body is designed to perform activities in quick bursts and followed by periods of rest to recover. That is more in line what our bodies have done for thousands of years instead of steady state aerobics. In fact, you can observe the animal kingdom. All animals are constantly moving and stopping. You won't see any animals jogging for 30-60 minutes. It would be ridiculous to see.
I have many of my friends and family members ask me for advice on how to get lean. Most are following ineffective workouts that have them working at low intensities for a long time. They do not understand why they see no results even though they are in the gym almost every day and working out for an hour at a time. They are also time starved between family and work, and seeking help. That's where I come in and I always prescribe the same thing; short high intensity interval cardio sessions. For those of us that are under the time gun on a continuous basis, then intervals are the way to go, almost a no brainer. Performing intervals is simple. Work hard, relative to your fitness level, for a set amount of time. After the work interval, rest for a set amount of time. After the rest period, perform the work interval again. Repeat the process for a set number of intervals. Here is an example using a stationary bike and a work interval of 30 seconds and a rest interval of 1 minute. Warm up for 3 to 5 minutes Hard 30 seconds Rest 1 minute Hard 30 seconds Rest 1 minute Hard 30 seconds Rest 1 minute Hard 30 seconds Rest 1 minute Cool down for 3 to 5 minutes It is important to understand that during the work interval, you don't need to kill your self!
There are many different options that you can use to get in shape, Aerobics is one of them. Unlike other methods of dieting and exercise in general, aerobics requires an amount of dedication that many people are simply too afraid to provide. There are many methods that you can do to prepare yourself for aerobics and to get yourself in that happy mood when it comes to this subject of exercise. Before you begin your Aerobics session, you will want to find some music that you enjoy. Aerobics generally provides the best results when music is played in the background. Music can be a great tool that will get you in an upbeat and active mindset. Some genres of music to consider for aerobic activity include Pop, Hip Hop, and Rock. If you attend a aerobics class, you may not have a choice in music. You will have to take this into consideration as you get into the Aerobics mood. In this situation, you may want to consider an investment in a portable device equipped with earbud headphones so that you can allow your style of music to put you into that genuine aerobics mood.
