An effective cardiovascular workout

September 3, 2012 - By Karine Larose, M.Sc.

Temps de lecture 1 minute


This week, I offer you a simple but yet effective cardiovascular workout. Whether you have access to a gym or not, your goal will be to train for 30 minutes. I’ll suggest you use two distinct machines. If you’re working out at home, you can do two different activities like walking/running with biking or roller balding. Most importantly, make sure to respect the prescribed intensity, which is the key for better results.

I suggest you finish your strength training exercises before doing this cardiovascular workout.

TOTAL DURATION: 30 minutes

At home: walk/jogg for 15 minutes THEN bike or skate for another 15 minutes.

At the gym: Stationary bike for 15 minutes (choose « Fat burner » mode on the machine) THEN go on the elliptical machine or do a fast walk or jogg on the treadmill (choose « Manual » mode on the machine) during 15 minutes also.

INTENSITY: 65% to 75% max HR or 10 à 13 on the Perceived exertion scale

Finish your cardiovascular workout with a few stretching exercises.
