Powerful Cardio – 2 Drills That You Can Implement To Achieve Superior Cardiovascular Fitness!

Powerful Cardio – 2 Drills That You Can Implement to Achieve Superior Cardiovascular Fitness!

I want to talk about 2 drills here that you can implement without the need for any real heavy duty equipment such as treadmills and elliptical trainers. In order to achieve real cardio you have to intensify the work you are doing. In other words, instead of just walking and only worrying about the resistance of your own body-weight try walking with a weighted backpack. Look to make your work more intense. Check out the following 2 drills that follows this same pattern.

1. Kettlebell Stair Walks: For this drill all you need is the availability of some stairs and a couple of kettlebells. You can use stairs in your home, at the park, or the bleachers at your local high school football field. Simply start at the base of the stairway or bleachers with a bell in each hand. Now your intensified work starts! Simply start climbing the stairs carrying the load of the 2 iron cannonballs with you. You will quickly realize how the inclusion of the 2 bells just made your mediocre walk an intense productive one!

2. Kettlebell Swings Into a Run: For this drill you will only need the availability of an open flat space and a single kettlebell. To intensify a simple jog for this drill you will tax yourself first by executing a set of double-arm kettlebell swings. To begin, mark off a distance of about 100 yards. Set the bell at one end of this marked distance and perform a series of 50 swings with a moderately heavy kettlebell. Once you complete the swings then immediately drop the bell and jog the 100 yards down and back totaling a 200 yard jogging distance! By doing this pre-work before your jog you are drastically improving your endurance, cardiovascular fitness, and stamina. You will achieve Powerful Cardio!
