Clues to Cardio

Take a look at most people grinding through a session on a fitness bike, treadmill or Stairmaster, eyes glued to the television. Chances are their bodies are moving but their minds are “checked out” when using cardio machines. Notice that most people lean onto the rails, propped up by unnatural arm positions and poor posture, the abdominals are slack, the back will be straining and unbalanced, often forcing the natural gait of stepping, running or walking to be abnormal. Instead, always use the basic technique of engaging core trunk and postural muscles. It makes for a tougher workout, burns more calories, staves off injury, and shows off your great form.
