Five Ways to Make Cardio More Fun (And Effective!)
Even though you might think you hate doing cardiovascular exercise, you don't. Trust me. You just haven't found what you like doing yet.
Engaging in cardio that you enjoy feels good. Really good. Why? One main reason is that it releases specific hormones like endorphins and serotonin that boost your mood and increase your level of happiness. That's pretty amazing. Stressed? Having a bad day? Need a quick pick me up? Just do some cardio.
If you're not enjoying your cardio yet, don't worry. You're not alone. If it were as simple as just going for a walk, run, bike ride, swim, etc., we wouldn't have the issues with the lack of exercise and continued rise in obesity rates that we do today.
Yes, there is a method to the madness. There are certain tips and tricks to performing your cardio to maximize your enjoyment as well as your results, two things that will ensure you make it part of your everyday life.
Yet it goes far beyond weight loss. Sure, losing weight is a primary goal for many when it comes to doing cardio, and, if you do it consistently, the weight will indeed come off. But once you truly find the cardio you enjoy and employ the methods revealed in this broadcast of the Bowflex Breakfast Club, then you will actually look forward to your cardio rather than dread doing it:
