calorie burning cardio

This calorie burning cardio workout won’t just aid in burning more calories for weight loss.

It’s also great for revving up your body and giving you a burst of energy!

Why Do A Calorie Burning Cardio Workout?

Though exercise may be the last thing you feel like doing when you’re tired or sluggish, believe it or not, a brisk workout is one of the best things you can do as a quick pick-me-up. 

According to research from the University of Georgia, a simple leisurely walk or modest intensity exercise can boost energy levels as much as 20%.  

At 2:00 in the afternoon (my slump time), I’ll take it!

Movement increases the blood flow and oxygen through the body as well as increasing endorphins to the brain, helping give a little pep to the second part of your day.

It doesn’t even need to be as intense as this week’s high-energy cardio routine.

Just get moving by doing 5 to 7 minutes of this video, taking a bike ride, going for a leisurely walk or doing any other of my cardio workouts.

And because exercise can help improve sleep, being better rested will make getting through your day a bit easier, too. 

Bottom line: try to move mid-afternoon rather than sitting so long at the computer or TV set.
