Do you ride the exercise bike or walk on a treadmill for long periods of time and feel like you aren’t getting the results you want? Try interval training to burn those calories and improve your cardiovascular capabilities. There are many names trainers give this but essentially it is increasing your output for a period of time, then focusing on recovery.
Depending on your fitness level, this period of time of increased exertion could be 15 seconds or 2 minutes. The recovery time will vary too. The important thing is to increase what you are doing to burn more calories and get stronger. If you do your cardio at the same level every time, you will get benefits from it, but to really maximize your time you have to push a little harder. The recovery is also key because we do want to be able to get our heartrate back under control in a resonable amout of time.
