The Significance of Physical Variability in Cardio Exercise

By Mike Geary

If you are keen follower of cardio workout then you must feel that it is the feasible ways to get in shape and also to have fat less body.

I disagree with the above mentioned point. Here is my justification.

It is usual from the suggestions we hear from the medics, fitness pros & from health professionals that performing moderate or low pressure training to people would reduce the risk of heart complications and to have average weight. They recommend something like the latter.

“By acting for half an hour to 1 hour maximum at a standard pace for 3-5 weeks would maintain your cardiac rate at a medium or healthy level”.

Instead of believing the familiar notion and falling like a prey in spending valuable time in the useless cardio routines, I would suggest you to go through some recent studies that only by doing standard cardio workouts may not be the pill to cure what you hope for.

Body is designed in such a way that when we perform heavy physical acts in short sprints and then some break to recover. Studies recently have given some ways in which physical variability plays a vital role in your training program.


Process of this nature is common in our environment where even animals perform stop & go movement avoiding standard pace mobility. To know there is a fact that humans are unique in nature that they are the only ones who can physically do activities for long duration.

By scrutinising an illustration providing variable impacts of endurance oriented training against stop & go method, taking into consideration we will find the difference in the physique of distant runners against short burst or short distance runners. Short burst or short distance runners have a lean, well built and muscular. While a long distance runner would look less muscular, extremely lean and seem like they are sick yet they have good stamina too run miles. Which type would you prefer to be??

Also to be checked is with regard to the gains you get from the physical variability where there is clear impact internally following variable forms of routines happening in the body. Researchers have found that extensive commitment in working out for long duration would raise abnormal reproduction of cells in the body, harm the joints, can cause muscle tear, reducing the bone life, less immune to resist and may lead to serious health diseases.

Whereas performing clockwise training with high degree of variability leads to rise in anti-oxidant generation in our system, higher metabolic rate and increased level of response in nitric oxide. Training on the basis of standard endurance only helps heart at reaching single particular change in heart rate. Thus it won’t help us cope with everyday stress put in heart.

Key factors which we need to look upon performing clockwise training are that it is better than the standard state exercise for cardio. The period of recovery gained after the exertion of short bursts must also be considered. Since period of recovery is vital for our system to facilitate a positive impact to our body. One other advantage from clockwise training would reduce the fall out rates when compared with that of long cardio routines which consumes lot of time.

Listing out some of the immensely valuable offers we get from performing clockwise training than standard endurance training are: Raised level of anti-oxidants, higher metabolic rate, no injury scare in the joints, improvement in the cardiovascular function, better muscle build, higher immunity & betterment in the overall heart functionality.

Along with this if we follow training with weight would help us leverage better recovery period after short bursts. Higher impact training with break in between is one of the many training modules that capitalize on exertion & the period of recovery. To illustrate you can see below: A session on training on the treadmill will seem like this:

Warm-up for 3-4 minutes at a fast walk or light jog

* Interval 1 – run at 8.0 mi/hr for 1 minute
* Interval 2 – walk at 4.0 mi/hr for 1.5 minutes
* Interval 3 – run at 10.0 mi/hr for 1 minute
* Interval 4 – walk at 4.0 mi/hr for 1.5 minutes


Repeat those 4 intervals 4 times for a very intense 20-minute workout

Full-body training programs along with high intensity cardiovascular training programs guaranteed to strip off body fat, combined with a healthy diet are included in my book The Truth About Six Pack Abs:
