High intensity intervals, fasted cardio, low intensity… ever wonder which is best?
You’re certainly not alone. It seems like we’re always on the hunt for the most effective fat burning form of cardio. And that answer is often conflicting.
But we’re thinking way too hard about this. The truth is, they ALL burn calories. And they are ALL effective.
The best type of cardio is always going to be the one that you actually do. You don’t need to worry about which one is going to burn the most calories in the shortest amount of time. If you don’t enjoy it, you’re never going to keep it up.
It may feel like you have to do high intensity intervals because you know they burn lots of calories in a short amount of time. But if you absolutely dread it, you may only end up doing it once per week, if that. On the flip side, if you love being outside and listening to an hour long podcast on a walk, then walking for an hour every day is going to be a better option than trying to force yourself to do interval training.
Fasted cardio might be more effective for you because you love to workout first thing in the morning but hate having a full stomach. Or maybe group classes are the most effective for you because if you don’t have a set schedule, you’ll skip the cardio all together.
Doing something is always better than doing nothing. If you want to add cardio into your life, focus on a form you actually enjoy.
You don’t have to do sprints to have an effective workout. If all you can do is walk, then walking is a great form of cardio! Maybe it’s not the most “effective” form of cardio, but it’s a great option for YOU.
If you’re a competitive athlete, the cardio you choose is important to maximize your performance. But for the average person like you and I, just go with whichever form you can stick with.
