ELEVATE was designed with specific programming in mind with 6 workouts per week to boost your cardiovascular fitness, improve your strength, increase mobility, and take back control of your self confidence. While not entirely necessary, additional cardio specific workouts if your goal is FAT LOSS can help accelerate your results.
IF YOUR GOAL = FAT LOSS
I recommend you add in 30 minutes of low intensity cardio workouts at the conclusion of your YOGA flow workouts for days 2,4, and 6 (Tues/Thurs/ Sat). These cardio workouts could include: bike riding, brisk walk or jog, treadmill, cycling, or my personal favorite just getting outside and enjoying the fresh air. I can’t tell you how refreshing it is to just outside and go for a hike or walk and appreciate the beauty in the nature around us.
IF YOUR GOAL = MUSCLE BUILDING
Any cardio is strictly optional but I wouldn’t recommend doing more than 1 or 2 additional cardio specific workouts per week to avoid burning too many calories in addition to the workouts to prevent any new muscle from building. Too much working out can be counter-productive when it comes to building muscle.
