Getting on the treadmill or eliptical or stationary bike for 45 to 60 minutes and slogging away is probably my least favorite thing to do when it comes to exercise.
I mean, not only is 45 to 60 minutes a long a@@ time, and I don’t really have the time for it ;), this approach to cardio is just SUPER boring!
I did it like this for years myself. Always thinking that there had to be a better way. But never really knowing what it was.
Good news is – if you feel the same way I do – there IS a solution. You don’t have to do cardio this way anymore to get results. In fact, just yesterday on the blog, I talked a recent study where researchers found that a high-intensity four minute workout was BETTER than 30 minutes of “slow” cardio for both increasing aerobic fitness levels, and improving muscular endurance in common exercises like chest presses, leg extensions, sit-ups, and push-ups.
Now, one of my favorite ways for incorporating this type of burst cardio into your routine is with what we call workout finishers.
These are short, high intensity sessions you can tack on at the end of any kettlebell workout. They are a killer way to finish things off, and awesome for burning tons of calories, and revving up your metabolism too.
Here’s a sample finisher for you – this one is from my friend Mike Whitfield’s new Workout Finishers program:
