11 Ways To Build Your Best Cardio Workout

To lose weight, you need a good cardio workout. But many people don’t have a firm understanding on what it takes to get great cardio workouts. Here are some cardio workout tips that are designed to make each workout more efficient and worthwhile.

Getting back into the gym after a long summer, vacation, holiday, or break from working out altogether can be a daunting task. So what does the average dude do? Hop on a treadmill, get bored after 5 minutes, winded after 10, and quit after 15. No progress—just sore joints, frustration, and an ongoing hate for anything related to cardio.

But we’re here to tell you: It doesn’t have to be this way.

Doing cardio has clear, in-your-face benefits for everyday life. Unfortunately, though, many people don’t know what constitutes effective cardio for muscle gains and improved fitness.

1. Plan your workout out ahead of time
