Personalized Cardio Workouts: Designing an Exercise Plan for Yourself

This guide will help you to design a series of balanced and useful workouts for yourself, along with setting exercise goals to keep you motivated and active while maintaining good heart health through cardio workouts.

Tip 1: Begin with a warm-up
Your cardio workout should always begin with a warm-up of at least 5 minutes. You cannot expect your muscles to go from being cold into high gear, so this time allows you to slowly raise your heart rate and activity level to what you will be doing during your workout. This warm-up can be a toned-down version of your planned workout activity, or it can be something completely different (such as walking/jogging on a treadmill before a bike ride).

Tip 2: Make sure your cardio workout is at least 20 minutes long
After warming up, you should spend at least 20 minutes in your cardio exercise. This is the part that is strengthening your muscles and heart, and burning lots of calories! Ideally, the intensity of your exercise will increase throughout the workout, until you taper off at the end. Try not to overexert yourself early on and then barely make it through the rest of your workout.

Tip 3: Cool down after your cardio workout
Once your cardio workout is over, spend at least 5 minutes cooling down, staying active while you lower your heart rate to 130 beats per minute or less. This also allows your muscles to taper down from full gear.

Tip 4: Stretch after your workout
After cooling down, you can spend some time stretching to prevent muscle ache the next day. Contrary to popular belief, the best time to stretch is not before your cardio workout, but after it!

Tip 5: Have a variety of potential workouts that you like
It is good to do a variety of cardio workouts, both to keep yourself interested and to work different muscle groups. If you plan to exercise 4 days every week (I recommend at least 3 days per week), you could run the first day, bike the next day, use the elliptical machine on the third, and the stairmaster on the fourth.

Tip 6: Don't just use machines to work out
You can also integrate cardio-heavy sports such as basketball, soccer, swimming, and raquetball into your schedule if you would like to. These get rid of the tedium of staying in the same spot as you work out.

Tip 7: Set reasonable goals for your cardio workouts
One of the best motivational tools for my cardio exercise has been to set goals and measure my progress toward them. This is easiest to do if you are using exercise machines in a fitness center or gym, but also can be done if you are exercising outdoors. For example, time how long it takes you to run 3 miles, and then from that, set a reasonable goal to work toward (1 minute faster, perhaps), and every time you run for your cardio exercise, time your 3 miles and write it down.

Tip 8: Set deadlines for your goals
Trying to get off those extra pounds before summer? You will find yourself working harder to meet your goals if you set a deadline on them!

Tip 9: Have a workout buddy
Find somebody of approximately your fitness level and commit to do cardio workouts together. This will help you to stay motivated and to discover new things that you can do to burn calories and increase your fitness level.

Tip 10: Balance cardio training with strength training
Your exercise plan is missing something if you are doing only cardio. This is a mistake that many women make, and if you spend some time on weight machines, you will find that your muscles get far stronger and the quality of your cardio workouts increases greatly!
