Carb Cycling Made Easy


Cardio is an important part in getting the best results. Your workouts will consist of strength training; core training, and stretching.  Cardio can combined to make a workout complete. Perform cardio based workout such as speed walking on the treadmill, incline walking on the treadmill, running on the treadmill, elliptical at high pace, high incline, or high resistance, spinning, stair master at high resistance, stair mill at moderate to fast pace, outdoor running, stadium steps and sprints, additional strength training, etc.  Complete at least 1 to 1.5 hours per session to help burn additional fat.  

Pre Work Out
Light Protein snacks and carbs (to fuel your body) are recommended before and within 30 minutes after a workout (for recovery)


Before and after each workout, it is important that you stretch the muscles you will be using. 
Stretching before a workout allows your body to become less prone to injury.  POST Stretches (stretching the muscles after your workout) helps to loosen the muscles and may alleviate soreness.


Breathe from your stomach during cardio.  This will allows you to take in more breath and fill your diaphragm. Breathing during exercise will help you increase your sets and performance.


Below are workouts designed to be more challenging to help you burn more calories during your session. 

ALWAYS warm up before beginning all cardio sessions by stretching for 5 minutes and walking on the treadmill for 5 minutes before beginning!  Also always cool down for 3-5 minutes of a low intensity when you are done on the machine.  For instance if you are on treadmill walk at 2.5 at no incline or if you are on Cybex Arc go at easiest setting and do the same on Stairmaster.
