4 Ways To Cardio Train That DO NOT Involve The Dreadmill

Have you ever wondered why all the running that you do does not really give you the results that you want when it comes to burning fat, dropping inches, getting leaner whatever you want to call it!!

READ THIS SENTENCE A FEW TIMES:

You won't build muscle if you are doing hours upon hours of cardio every week. Got me?

Here's another reason:

Low intensity cardio uses muscle to fuel the exercises a lot of the time. So, you not only are stopping your body from making new muscle, but you are actually BURNING YOUR CURRENT MUSCLE.

Low - Medium intensity cardio is what you see everyone at the gym doing.

They go at a fairly hard pace, that’s above a walk but nowhere near a sprint, for 30-60 minutes.

Ever notice how their bodies never change?

That’s because that form of cardio is useless. Actually, it’s worse than useless. It’s detrimental.

It can cause muscle loss and actually cause you to get fatter. When doing medium intensity cardio your body produces too much cortisol (stress hormone) so you end up eating away at your hard earned muscle.

Excessive cortisol production can also lead to increased body fat storage in the abdominal region.

Think about your bum shrinking from cardio.

Yeah you might be getting better at running but what about your bodyshape, is that getting leaner? or are you still struggling to get rid of the wobbly bits?
