Ask Denise!

When Is the Right Time for Cardio?

Q: Is it better to do my cardio routine before or after the Daily Dozen exercises?

A: That depends on your schedule! I've set up my fitness program so that you're doing cardio five days a week, along with your Daily Dozens, but when you do it is completely up to you! Maybe going for a brisk morning walk works for you (sometimes it's best to get the cardio done right away, so you don't have to worry about it the rest of the day). Then again, it might be more convenient for you to hit the elliptical machine or the treadmill at the gym that's around the corner from your job during your lunch hour or after work.

Or you could pop in a cardio DVD while the kids are at school. For a varied — and fun! — workout, try my new Body Burn With Dance and Pilates DVD, which features a cardio dance workout, standing and mat pilates. You get three high-energy, low-impact workouts that give you help you lose weight and slim down. Basically, when it comes to cardio, you can do it anytime, anyplace — just as long as you do it! Then you'll reap its fat-burning rewards!
