Whether your goal is to get ripped, get toned, lose weight, or fight diabetes, cardio can take you a long way in your journey.
Cardio at PedalBeat isn’t just calculated by the amount of time you spin, but how efficiently you’ve used that time to strengthen your heart. How do we measure this? By calculating your heart rate with colour coded zones – orange being the ideal zone to pulverize fat, and improve cardio-vascular strength.
In fact, getting your heart to the orange zone is so important we recommend getting some cardio in at least 6 times a week.
With a session of cardio every day, the increased blood flow will carry your disease-fighting WBCs through your bloodstream and keep you in the pink (or should we say orange) of health!
2. Better definition
They say you can’t get a 6-pack if you have above 10% body fat. So if muscle definition is your goal, avoid overtraining with the crunches, and get in that cardio as well.
3. Happier dispositions
We don’t have to remind you about how exercise releases endorphins and endorphins make you happy! But we cannot stress enough on the benefit of cardio on your mental wellbeing.
4. Faster recovery
Cardio reduces DOMS (Delayed Onset of Muscle Soreness) bringing more oxygen rich blood to your muscles and helping you heal after a workout. Cardio helps you keep at the strengthening.
5. Superlative heart health
No matter how hard you exercise, your workout isn’t going to cut it if you ignore your heart. Getting your heart pumping, keeps it strong, healthy, and happy.
So go ahead, and get your heart at the orange zone.
A little orange a day, helps keep more than just the doctor away.
