If you’ve read the previous post on choosing between weight-lifting and cardio work, you will have understood that you should really do both. If you’re like me, you will much prefer lifting weights than cycling on a stationary bike. So how do you stop yourself from getting bored with your cardio and stopping?
Cardio work, although very often thought of as simply running or cycling on a stationary bike, is not limited to these boring repetitive activities. Cardio is also playing football, badminton, tennis, basketball, in fact, any long-lasting activity that will get you out of breath for a sustain period. Although heavy squats will certainly make you gasp for breath, they are not a sustained activity. So pick the sports you enjoy and you will most certainly stick to them in the long-term.
