The FAST PACE Workout allows you to reap the maximum benefits of your cardiovascular workout in the minimal amount of time. A cardiovascular workout (cardio) includes walking, running, biking and other exercises that cause you to breathe hard or fast. Breathing harder or faster helps to strengthen your heart and lungs. The goal of the FAST PACE Workout is to exercise as hard as you can for a duration of 20 minutes. This method is beneficial because it forces your heart and lungs to operate at a higher level, which promotes improvement. Walking or running faster will burn more calories than exercising at a leisurely pace. Exercising at a slow pace does not allow one to maximize the benefits of cardiovascular exercise. Your body adapts quickly to slow exercise which allows it to use less energy. Therefore, strap on your running shoes, and step up the pace so your body can burn those calories quicker!
