How much cardio? What kind of cardio should you do?

Disclaimer :This video is assuming you are doing 2-4 weight lifting sessions per week

Im never really an advocate for cardio only programs
These are estimations. There is no exact right or wrong amount. This is just my suggestion based on experience with myself and my clients.

Ask your self these questions
What are my goals?
Whats my body type?
How tight am I going to be with my nutrition?

What are my goals?
“ Lose weight” aka lose fat?
Gain muscle?
Get “shredded?

Whats my body type?
Ectomorph
Mesomorph
Endomorph

How tight am I going to be with my nutrition?

Endomorph that wants to lose fat
While being super tight on your nutrition I would suggest 2, 25-35 minutes sessions of steady state cardio.
Steady state is easier on the joints
And typically more enjoyable for the beginner
(3-4 sessions a week if you’re not going to stick to your nutrition plan strictly)

Mesomorph who want to get shredded
If you’re super tight on your nutrition I would suggest 2-3, 15-25 minutes sessions of interval cardio or 2-3, 7-15 minutes sessions of HIIT per week

I would add 1-2 sessions of steady state cardio if you’re not strictly sticking to your nutrition plan

Ectomorph that want get shredded
I would suggest 1-2, 7-15 minutes sessions of HIIT per week
Add 1-2 15-25 minute interval sessions in there if you’re not going to be strict
