Common cardio mistakes (and how to fix them)

Hi, Coach Bruce here from www.ebodi.com checking in with you.

Walk into any gym and you will observe men and women exercising on a variety of different cardio machines, the three most common being;

Treadmill

Elliptical

Stationary Bike

All three of these have their strengths and weaknesses. Personally I prefer the treadmill (because I love to perform interval sprints) but there are benefits to including variety in your exercise program. Regardless of what modality you choose here are some common mistakes and how you can fix them;

Treadmill — when it comes to using the treadmill many people forget about using the incline to increase difficulty. For some people running isn’t a good option however walking on a steep incline can produce similar results. Start low and increase in increments of 1%. This makes for a more difficult workout without overstressing your joints.

Elliptical — Most folks love this machine because the motion is easy to do. Problem is that nothing that is easy ever works worth a darn. To fix this simply increase the resistance so that you are having to push hard with each “step”. This will increase calories burned and results while still being easy on your joints.

Stationary Bike — This my least favourite machine simply due to the fact that sitting on those little seats can reduce blood flow to vital parts of your anatomy!  I can recall feeling numb “down there” after a long stint on a bike seat — not good for the manly parts. Also, the seated position lends itself to further tightening of the hip flexors which most of us have a problem due to being seated most of the day. To combat this always stand at regular intervals to improve blood flow and increase range of motion.

There are three simple tips to help you get more out of your exercise program. Have a great week!

Bruce

7-Day Trivia Challenge wrap-up

- January 2nd, 2013

Thank you to everyone who participated in the first-ever Keeping Fit 7-Day Trivia Challenge. The steady onslaught of submitted responses to each day’s question kept my BlackBerry buzzing, but it helped make this week-long contest a tremendous success.

And I don’t know about you, but I definitely learned a few interesting facts about weight-loss and nutrition.

Thank you to Genuine Health and fitness guru Bruce Krahn for all the great prizes. And thanks again to Bruce for supplying all the questions and answers.

Here’s the answer to yesterday’s question:

Green coffee bean extract contains Chlorogenic acids which have been shown to increase weight loss. Look for a standardized extract as found in Svetol.

And here’s a list of the daily winners (randomly drawn) in the inaugural Keeping Fit 7-Day Trivia Challenge:

Day 1 — Sharon Thurston, of Saint-Anicet, Que., a one-month supply of abs+ from Genuine Health.
