5 Day Weight Loss Cardio Routine

When it comes to weight loss, people tend to want results quickly. The only way you’re going to get results fast is by following a strict cardio regime, and an intense one. Below is a five day cardio workout plan you can follow for the next five weeks.

Day 1: Treadmill Workout
The treadmill workout will take you 30 minutes to complete. You will start off by doing five minutes of brisk walking, followed by five minutes of light jogging and then another five minutes of walking at a brisk pace, but with the incline as high as it can go. After that, you want to set the treadmill’s incline to medium or half of what the highest incline is and walk for five minutes, followed by five minutes of light jogging and then you’ll finish up with five minutes of walking at a brisk pace.

To sum up the above, the workout consists of:

. 5 minutes of brisk walking
. 5 minutes of light jogging
. 5 minutes of walking at an incline
. 5 minutes of walking at a medium incline
. 5 minutes of light jogging
. 5 minutes of brisk walking

Day 2: Cycling Workout
This is a simple workout it only involves cycling on a bicycle or using a cycling machine. The only thing you have to do is cycle for 30 minutes, but if you want to get the best results, then change the speed you pedal at for five minutes at a time. For example, for five minutes you can pedal at a comfortable pace and then pedal at full speed for the next five minutes, followed by five minutes of pedaling at a slow pace and so forth.

This workout may look simple, but by the end of it you will be feeling the burn and your legs will feel great.

Day 3: Jogging Workout
This workout is simple and involves 30 minutes of jogging, either outdoors or on a treadmill. You can maintain whatever pace you want to maintain. If you feel as if you cannot jog for the full 30 minutes, then you can keep alternating between walking and jogging for 30 minutes.

Day 4- Elliptical Workout
The elliptical workout involves doing the elliptical for 30 minutes straight. If you feel this is too long, then you can do 15-20 minutes, but try to do at least 30 minutes.

Day 5- Dance, Jumping Jacks And Walking Workout
This workout is a bit longer than the workouts previously discussed, as you will be doing 45 minutes of cardio. The first activity you will do is 10 minutes of dancing, followed by 10 minutes of jumping jacks and then you’ll finish with 25 minutes of walking.

Also, you don’t need to be a professional dancer or anything like that. Just put music on and dance to your own rhythm. As for the jumping jacks, just do as many as you can in a span of 10 minutes and feel free to take a 1-2 minute break when needed.

Day 6 And 7: Rest
One day six and seven you will take a rest before doing your cardio workout again. If doing cardio five days in a row is too much for you, then feel free to take your rest days whenever, but the key is to do the workouts each week for five weeks.

Weight loss doesn’t have to be hard to achieve, and the above cardio workout can help you lose weight fast. If you stick with that workout for the next five weeks and you don’t skip any days, then you should see results within five weeks.
