Cardio Mistakes to Avoid

Los Angeles, CA – 1/28/2014

Cardiovascular training is animportant part of overall physical health, but it’s important to understand howto rightly incorporate this aspect of exercise into a regimen.  Mistakes made during cardio workouts canleave a person without the results they crave, or injured and unable tocontinue towards their goals.

One of the most common mistakesmade during cardio exercise is not maintaining proper form.  The “bigger is better” theory is often thereason behind this mistake, and examples of this are unloading bodyweight ontohandles of a step-machine, not keeping proper posture during a run, or usingleverage when the incline gets tough on an incline treadmill.  To correct this, lower the settings on themachines or ease back on the pace of a run or exercise class.  This will help maintain posture and increasethe overall effectiveness of the activity.

Another mistake commonly madeusing machines is not understanding how the “target heart rate” functionswork.  While these rates can becalculated by age or weight, they’re not personalized and could mean theexerciser is working below the rate they need to be at to improve fitness.  A better idea is to calculate personal heartrate during the workout, and assessing personal performance to determinewhether or not the workout needs to increase or decrease in intensity.

While machines are a good way toget in a cardiovascular workout, it’s a mistake to rely on them as the singlesource of cardio exercise.  In order toreap the full benefits and test physicality, a person needs to engage in realcardio activities to see if the workout they are doing is benefiting them or ifthere is room for improvement.  Find acardio activity off the machine, such as jogging or a sporting event, that onecan engage in to both enjoy the benefits of their newly developed athleticism,but also to see if they need to upgrade or enhance their current workout forbetter overall results.
