On 08/04 Diane asks: Just wanted to know if cardio is the same at 30 mins a day as it is at 60mins?  Is there more benefit in going beyond a 30min sweatfest other than calories?
Thirty minutes
Or more
Must be 30
To activate
Fat burning
Metabolic activation
And a whole lot more
30 minimum…
And yes, there
Are more
Benefits than
Most could
Imagine possible
To increasing
Cardio endurance
And strength…
45 min cardio
20 min weights
A good warm up
And cool down
And you’ve got
Yourself one
Hell of a workout…
