I find something that really makes cardio exercise much more enjoyable is to first improve flexibility, then strength, and then increase cardio.
Since cardio exercises are associated with weight loss, it is easy to become focused on the scale and forget about the other two aspects of fitness. Being flexible and strong makes cardio exercise much less of an ordeal so walking, biking, etc. becomes more pleasant when the body moves with ease.
My Gymboss interval timer is my partner in crime. I use it for HIIT (High intensity intrval training) training on the vertical bike. Instead of spending an hour doing cardio, I do my cardio in 20 minutes! This saves time and allows me to focus on my weight training. After 20 minutes of HIIT cardio, I'm dripping wet and burned just as many calories as if I did 1 hour of cardio.
I bought mine off their website for $19.99 plus shipping. It keeps me in tune with my intervals! www.gymboss.com
Cardio is more important than resistance training.In fact, I do cardio every weekdays and resistance training just on Saturdays. Here is he best cardio routine: Mon-Swimming Tue-Swimming Wed-Basketball Thurs-Swimming Fri-Swimming Sat-Resistance training. 84
If your asking me why cardio is important,it is because cardio extends your afterburn effect wich helps you burn fat.Resistance training also has the effect but it only has little of that.So do cardio now.
