If you’re trying to burn fat, these cardio options will be much more helpful than a slow jog on the treadmill.
We’ve all had a great laugh while watching people do cardio workouts while talking on the phone, texting their BFF, or reading a magazine. We’ve all seen them time and again; those barely sweating, not short of breath, but all the while thinking that they’re, “getting it done.” The good news is, if you’re here that’s probably not you. You’re an athlete who trains with a purpose.
Why training explosively, regardless of whether you’re an athlete or not, will help you see the results you’re actually looking for.
The sad reality is, as we age, we lose muscular power at a much faster rate than muscular strength. Muscular explosiveness (aka “power) not only adds longevity to our athletic careers, but also helps us live longer. Without explosiveness, we’d be slower, less agile, and unable to perform in pickup games on the weekend. Essentially with no explosiveness there’s no athleticism.
