Cardio Training

Who is endurance training suitable for?

It is important with Cardio training that the fun does not come too briefly, since one trains so directly more efficiently, because one has longer fun at it and one does not lose the desire already after short time at it. For this reason, you should rather choose the training device that is the most fun and not the most efficient to use. It is also possible to train without any equipment. Popular endurance sports without equipment include swimming, cycling and jogging.

Beginners should start their cardio training slowly so that the cardiovascular system can adjust to it gradually. Anyone who exaggerates at the outset will only achieve the opposite effect. It is important to create a training plan that corresponds to your own fitness level. This should then be processed regularly. Only in this way can a so-called basic endurance be built up. This endurance describes a longer period of time in which one is able to maintain one's performance evenly without overexerting oneself. How long this basic endurance is always depends on your own fitness level. This can be around 30 to 40 minutes when running and around 60 to 90 minutes when cycling. Endurance, as already mentioned, can of course also be built up without training equipment, i.e. by classic cycling, jogging or swimming. Cardio training can be performed by anyone, provided there is no cardiovascular disease, then prior consultation with the doctor should be held. There is no restriction regarding age or fitness level. This means that there is always the opportunity to start training and improve your endurance.

How to combine endurance training with other sports?

Endurance training and strength training are a perfect combination. Endurance training trains the cardiovascular system and improves the ability to regenerate, where strength training strengthens the body, increases calorie turnover, melts fat deposits and generally improves performance. This is how a great all-round fitness can be built up. It should be noted here that large muscle groups are trained before small muscle groups and that the subsequent endurance training should then no longer be as intensive if the strength training was very extensive. Strength and endurance training can also be carried out alternately on different days. How strength training and cardio training are designed in each individual case depends on the individual training goal. To build muscle, endurance training in combination with strength training must be designed differently than a person who wants to reduce weight.
