What is cardio?
Cardiovascular workouts or cardio increases your heart rate and kick starts your metabolism. These are the most effective forms of exercise for sustained weight loss. Cardio focuses on exercises at a target heart rate (which depends on your age and weight). The more you exercise at the target heart rate, the more fat you’ll burn.
If you plan for weight loss, you’ll require 150-300 minutes of moderate physical activity 5 days a week. If you have a tight schedule, you can split your exercise sessions into three smaller workouts a day. For example, you can exercise 20 minutes in the morning, walk for 20 minutes during lunchtime, and exercise for 20 minutes after dinner.
