Cardio Beginner Weight Loss

Beginner Cardio

Cardio exercise is important for a healthy heart and weight loss.
How to Begin

Choose an activity that you enjoy. The best exercise for you is the one you'll actually do, not the one you think you should do. Walking is a great place to start since it doesn't require special equipment and you can do it anywhere, but you can try any activity that involves some type of continuous movement like cycling, swimming, running, aerobics, rowing, stairclimbing, etc.

Start with 2 or 3 days of your chosen activity a week with a rest day between workouts.
Begin with a 5-10 minute warm up of light cardio to gradually increase heart rate.
Increase your pace and intensity to slightly harder than comfortable (about a Level 5 or 6 on the Perceived Exertion Scale or you can use Target Heart Rate to monitor intensity) and go as long as you comfortably can. Begin where you ARE, not where you want to be. You may only be able to exercise for a few minutes at a time, but that will change quickly if you're consistent.
End each workout with a cool down of light cardio and stretch the muscles you've worked to relax and keep your muscles flexible.
Each week, increase your workout time by a few minutes until you can work continuously for 30 minutes a session.
Don't worry about distance or pace. For the first few weeks, focus on showing up for your workouts and building time. You have plenty of time to work on your speed and distance.
After 4-6 weeks, change your routine by adding another day of exercise, increasing your pace/intensity, adding a new activity and/or increasing the amount of time you exercise.

I like the part where you say "Walking is a great place to start since it doesn't require special equipment and you can do it anywhere." I do this every day while pushing my little one in the stroller. I'm trying to lose pregnancy weight and get back in shape, and I love walking now! I have my friend come with me (she pregnant now) and we have a great time together. Stay fit and healthy!

If you think back to your own personal health history, I am confident you can pinpoint a time in your life when the weight just started to “creep” up on you. Whether it was an emotional or stressful trigger that started the number on the scale to climb or the hectic pace of life which caused health to take a back burner position – one day you wake up and realize just do not feel like the vibrant, fit person you were meant to be. The good news is, the body has an amazing forgiving and restorative nature – given the proper foods, nutrients and conditions, it responds positively in a very short time.

You'll see the TT Introductory and Beginner workouts are incredibly conservative. I've used these exact workouts with 300 pound men and 200+ women with success and without injury or excessive soreness. Go conservatively, and everything will be fine for healthy individuals.

This workout requires the use of an elliptical trainer with an adjustable ramp (incline). Ellipticals provide an excellent aerobic workout without the impact associated with running or walking. It has been found that users have a lower rate of perceived exertion on the elliptical as compared to other forms of exercise. The elliptical trainer provides a whole body workout when you use a hands-free approach, similar to walking, jogging or running depending on the stride frequency (slower or faster leg motion). Additionally, the adjustable ramp allows you to target various muscle groups to begin to condition your muscles, tendons and joints along with your fat burning metabolism.

Pregnancy morning sickness

Pregnancy morning sickness for some women isn't just morning sickness, but it is morning, noon, and night sickness. You are sick all the time, and all you want to do is crawl back into bed.
