Have you ever wandered what the difference between doing steady state cardio such as walking is compared to

doing intervals?

there are many different types of cardio and they do effect your body in different ways so make sure you use them effectively

for the best results possible.

If you want to do steady fat burning cardio then steady state cardio which is things like walking,cycling and any low to medium intensity

exercise that is done a steady pace is a great way to train.

Steady state wont have the after effects and harder recovery of vigorous exercise like sprints but it will still burn calories and eat into fat stores

effectively which is great for leaning down and can be good to use in between harder cardio and interval days.

Intervals are another way to train cardio and can be a great way to increase fitness as the whole point is to out your heart rate up and down

so you go hard for a period of time then go easy for a period of time its very simple but very effective and when used in between steady state days can be a great way to make sure your body is being tested in different ways and get your metabolism firing.

intervals will also take a greater toll on your body because of the higher intensity in your sessions therefore your body will burn more calories trying to recover and repair the muscles.

there are many other forms of cardio you can do such as endurance based cardio which is things like long runs and rides as well as swimming these activities are usually done at a decent pace for an extended period of time and can be a great way to get fit and lose weight.

now you know more about different types of cardio try them all out with your own training and see how you go.
