Cardio

#1 Postby SeaSiren » Tue May 24, 2005 9:30 am

How important is cardio? I really, really hate cardio! I don't mind too much having to do it 2-3 times for 20 min (altough it really bores me). But, I still have some fat to lose and would much prefer to be in the weight room. Do I really have to kick up the cardio to lose the rest of the fat?

JFYI - I only have about an hour a day to work out, and do not care to do other types of cardio outside the gym. It's much easier to use their machines.

loosing fat

the key to loosing fat is to get your heart rate up and that can be done with weights. It just takes doing less weight with more reps at a quicker pace.

I honestly think cardio is the best way to loose weight but any way you can get your heart beating faster works.

try running outside with a partner or something, that is what solves the horros of cardio for me.
