emoticon Cardio Blitz:

Cardio blitz is a cardio burst of activity squeezed into your day in small time segments-5 to 15 minutes-through out the day. The purpose of the blitz is every time you get your heart pumping it kicks up your metabolism a notch-more fat burning. The shorten exercise period also allows you to exercise more vigorous than you could for longer periods of time. Even short burst of vigorous exercise will keep your fat burn higher even while at rest. Every time you exercise hormones are released that improves the amount of stress you are feeling-lowers it. And for the final reason to squeeze in some cardio blitz during the day every day is exercising has a temporary protective effect on your heart and vessels.

emoticon Ready: Always exercise within the guidelines provided to you by your health care provider. Target heart rate is an excellent way to judge intensity of your workout but is not suitable for everyone. Information about Target Heart Rate (THR) and other ways to judge intensity can be found here -
