How long to cardio train for?The length of a cardio session is common question and really depends on what your fitness goals are.

Why do you need to diet to get 6pack absFor ages I always thought that by doing heaps and heaps of sit ups every night I will be able to show off a six pack during summer. I found that my abdominal muscles were increasing if I touched them but I could not get that perfect definition. Working out your abdominal area will increase the muscles but if they are covered by a layer of fat they will not be seen.

Which is better? Treadmill or EllipticalI was looking at different ways to improve my cardio training at home. The obvious thought that came to mind was a treadmill. A treadmill is an exercise machine that has a moving platform consisting of a belt that allows a person to walk or run at a rate equal to the belt speed. They contain some sort of shock absorption which makes them an advantage over normal walking or running. I would consider getting a treadmill if I was training for Read the story…
