Our tips for cardio and fat loss

It's no secret that cardio can help with fat loss. But what's the best way to do it?

There are a lot of options out there, from the stairmaster to bicycling to just plain old walking. These activities raise your heart rate and get your body working hard. This results in the burning of more calories, which can lead to weight loss. Counting calories is always a good idea.

Second, cardio helps to increase your metabolic rate. This is the rate at which your body burns calories, and the higher your metabolic rate, the easier it is to lose weight. Regular cardio exercise can help to increase your metabolic rate, making it easier for you to lose fat.

But what's the best way to use cardio for fat loss?

Here are a few tips:

- Find an activity that you enjoy. If you hate running, don't do it! You're not going to stick with it if you don't enjoy it.

- HIIT (high-intensity interval training). It is more effective for fat loss because it can help you build muscle and burn more calories, while pushing yourself a lot harder.

- Set a goal. Whether it's to lose a certain amount of weight, or just to get in better shape, setting a goal will help you stay motivated.

- Give yourself time. Don't try to do too much too soon. Ease into it and gradually increase your activity level.

- Count your calories. This is important whether you're doing cardio or not. But it's especially important if you're trying to lose weight, a healthy diet is key.

following these tips, you'll be on your way to better health and a better body!

Nobodi’s Treadmill hack to easy weight loss

Throw on some fitness wear and get to the gym, jump on a treadmill and follow our steps:

  • Speed - Set the speed between 4.0 to 5.0 depending on your body fat percentage. High fat percentage = higher speed set to 5.0 max.

  • Incline - Set the treadmill incline between 12-15 max.

  • Time - each session should be 15-20 mins max, 2 sessions for 40 mins total max a day.

You do not need to spend more than 40 mins on the treadmill. The goal is to burn 200 calories in 20 mins while maintaining a lower heart rate because it helps to promote the release of fatty acids from your fat cells. The fatty acids are then used for energy, resulting in a reduction of body fat. If the heart rate is too high your body will resort to using energy faster from eg: muscle and our goal to weight loss is to target fat rather than muscle.

Carry out this exercise 6 times a week partnered with a calories cautious diet and you’ll be seeing results in no time.

Cardio can help to increase the number of calories you burn at rest. This is because it causes your body to adapt and becomes more efficient at using energy. As a result, you will burn more calories even when you are not exercising!
