I don't know if this happens to you but any time I learn a new exercise or style of workout that really works to burn fat I tend to want to just do that all the time.
When I first read about high intensity interval training back in 1999 (man, I'm getting old) I was crazy about it. I did the Body for Life cardio workout all the time (video below so you can see what I mean). I did it on the treadmill, the elliptical, or the bike and that's the only type of cardio I ever did.
After two years of this I was completely burned out on machines as well as intervals. Didn't matter how hard I tried to workout, my mind was bored with the same old ramp up ramp down thing and I was stuck on a plateau. Good thing I became a trainer shortly after this or I might have gained my 30 pounds of blubber back.
I don't know why so many of us insist on doing the same type of cardio workout or any workout over and over and over even when it's clearly no longer helping us improve our bodies. I guess it's human nature to want to stick to what's safe and familiar but if you're trying to lose fat and look great you can't afford to get stuck in a rut!
Below I'll be adding some great cardio workout tips to help you get your best body ever. These tips work to prevent boredom, they prevent plateaus, and guarantee you won't ever get stuck in a cardio rut.
