Gilad:

What is the most effective type of cardio workout?

 
Answer:

Aloha Sharyl,
There are 2 types of cardio workouts. The first is a 'steady pace' cardio workout that maintains your heart rate at 60% to 75% of your maximum heart rate for a period of 30 minutes. The second is an 'interval' cardio workout that incorporates 6 to 10 high intensity cardio bursts during the 30 minute period. Each burst lasts 20 to 60 seconds and raises your heart rate to above 80% of your max. The question is: "Which type of workout is better for burning fat and getting into shape?" The answer? A 'steady pace' cardio workout is recommended for beginners or people that are overweight or have not worked out in a while. The 'steady pace' workout should be used for about 6 weeks to help you build a 'fitness foundation'. Once this has been accomplished you can start incorporating 'interval' cardio training into your program. It is proven that 'interval' cardio training can dramatically improve your fitness level and have measurable health benefits for your heart and respiratory system. 
Aloha, Gilad
