Many people think you have to log hours and hours of cardio to lose weight. Well, with the 5-Factor Diet that's just not true! Following your regular strength-training workouts, I suggest 5 minutes of cardio at a high intensity to get you into the fat-burning zone — where the weight-loss magic happens!
Of course, I have several clients who enjoy more lengthy cardio sessions. Some love the way they feel when they step off the; some use exercise as a way to relieve stress; others want to lose even more weight. The fact is, the more cardio you do, the more calories you're going to burn.
So if you're looking for additionalor you've hit a weight-loss plateau, challenge yourself to increase your cardio by 5 or 10 minutes. There's no need to go beyond 30 minutes; in fact, pushing yourself could result in injury or fatigue. I don't suggest doing more than 10 or 15 minutes of cardio at a time — then you'll save enough juice for the next day's workout!
