Make your workout WORK!
Want results from your exercise? You’re going to have to WORK! Your cardio workout should be challenging, that’s the point. So, ditch the workouts leaning on the bars of the cardio machine, forgot the exercise when you’re checking your email the entire time, get rid of workouts when you’re chatting it up, distracted and putting forth half-effort! Your fitness= you get out of it, what you put into it. If you’re cruising through your exercise, check yourself:
1. You should be breathing harder than normal.
2. Your perceived exertion (how hard you gauge you’re working) should be somewhat hard.
3. You should have to focus on proper execution of your exercise.
4. You may be sweating.
5. You should feel fatigue for about 30 minutes post workout.
