I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I LOVE CARDIO. I’ve mentioned before that I ran track in college, so running or any type of high intensity cardio is just in my bloood and makes me feel SO GOOD!
I think one of the reasons I’ve found certain types of cardio to be so effective for me is because I approach it the same exact way I approach my training (or even how i used to approach track meets)...meaning I go into it thinking I’m going to give it 150% of my efforts and hit it with as much intensity as possible (we’re speaking in regards to HIIT here, obviously lol). When I’m done with my cardio session, I wanna be drenched in sweat & barely able to function — same way I feel when I finish a crazy back or leg session, or when I’d finish a gut checking track practice (I used to live by the garbage can @ practices lmao).
If you approach cardio with a sense of dread or with the “let’s just get this over with” mentality, you’re likely not getting as much out of it as you could be! Doesn’t matter what type you’re doing: LISS, HIIT, stairs, running, incline walking, riding the bike, jump rope, plyo circuits, etc etc...approach it with the “I’m gonna give it all I got” mentality. There’s nothin better than a goooood sweat sesh 💪🏼😘 *here I did 10min steady state to start, then started sprints @ highest level for 25 sec w/ a minute recovery @ 7-8 for a total of 30min*
Everyone asks every time I wear these leggings: they’re from express & not actual workout leggings lol
