How Often Should You Do Cardio And Abs?

How Often Should You Do Cardio And Abs?

July 31, 2019

Very often the question about how often you should do cardio and abs circle around. Today I will share my tips on how I train cardio and abs!

CARDIO

For a while, I've tried out doing 10 minutes of intervals after every workout I had. Since always I've hated cardio, it just isn't fun. But I really felt like I needed to work on cardio as well and not just skip it. Mainly to train the heart more and be healthier.

So instead of doing hours of cardio every day, I did 10 minutes of effective interval training and it worked amazing!

I got better every week and I most importantly I felt SO good. The interval I'm doing is:

12 sets, 20sec work and 10sec rest. Takes about 7-10 minutes to perform. I do it on the Stairmaster, but it works fine wherever. 

ABS 

Isn't abs just the same as cardio? I mean the feeling is just the same. We all know we need to do it, but we just never feel like doing it haha.

So what I did to solve it was the same way as I did with cardio. A little bit on every workout. 

I start all my workouts with a short ab session. Right now I'm doing a workout that takes about 5 minutes to perform and it's KILLING my abs.

Short and effective is really the recipe for muscle groups you really don't feel like doing. 

The workout I'm doing is:

  • Medicine Ball Crunch
  • Sit-ups With Medicine Ball Between Legs
  • Bicycle With Weave
  • V-up With Med-Ball Pass

I perform all exercises for 20sec each without pause between the exercises, and I do it 3 times if you can do 4. After you have done all 4 exercises, rest about 1 minute before starting the circuit again. If you like to see a video where I do this circuit you can find it HERE.
