Do You Get Enough Cardio?

Feb 29, 2016 Eric Toussaint 6 Comments

We here at JETT tell our clients to shoot for three to four days of cardio a week. The safest and easiest combination is two days on the elliptical at 55-65% of your maximal heart (fat burning and building you cardiovascular base) and two days spinning (interval training).

If you combine this with a sound diet and two days of weight-lifting (full body) you will be healthy.

Sometimes it’s hard to hit the mark, here are some tips.

  1. Get a FitBit (shoot for a minimum of 10,000 steps a day).
  2. Walk for half of your lunch hour.
  3. If weather permits get off the bus a stop or two a head of your destination.
  4. Get a treadmill desk.
  5. Join a running club so your have some accountability
  6. Schedule your cardio bouts in your smart phone.

Bottom line…move more we all can.

All the best and be healthy!!
