The Most Effective Cardio
A lot of people think that to lose weight and get the body you want, you have to do cardio. True. Cardio will help you burn fat. BUT, overtraining cardio will also start to eat your muscle. Muscle is what keeps you tone and helps you burn fat when youâ€™re not working out, so too much cardio will give you the result of “skinny fat”. Iâ€™ve been there.
Find Your Stride
I donâ€™t think there is anyone thatâ€™s in the middle when it comes to running. You either love it or hate it. I was one of those ones that hated it. Sure, there are some naturally great runners, but I think most people have to work for it. Running the mile in high school was always the worst day of my life. I wasnâ€™t fast, I couldnâ€™t breathe and I was always in pain afterwards. I was the student that got an â€œAâ€ for effort and an â€œFâ€ for time. I didnâ€™t understand how people could breathe through the running. How are you that fast? Donâ€™t you feel like dying? Am I that out of shape? Granted, I was always a little chubby growing up and didnâ€™t play sports, but I was in the Marching Band; played piccolo. Clearly, I had good lung capacity.
