Do I Need Cardio in my Training?

You might be wondering...  

🤔 How important cardio is in your training? 

🤔 How much of a priority should it be?  

🤔 How does it fit into your GMB program? 

There are a lot of benefits to regular aerobic activity. Raising your heart rate to higher levels for a period of time is valuable and improves health, and most of our programs do include some endurance training/conditioning.

But it can be confusing about what the best way to increase your heart rate is. You don’t need to do this on a treadmill, and you don’t need to just tack some “cardio” at the end of your workouts.

Our approach to conditioning is a little different. A more general plan prioritizes the skills and movements you’re focusing on mastering, and uses conditioning to improve your endurance  in those movements. It should specifically support your goals. This article talks about conditioning, goes into more detail on how we incorporate this type of training in to your GMB programs.

If you are interested in endurance training for a specific activity beyond the general stamina and conditioning you get from our programs then you would need to train for that specific activity, for example running, or cycling. Our programs can help to a point; Elements will help you run better but it won't get you the conditioning you need for a marathon.

If you have any more questions about conditioning, and what's going to be most useful for your goals, feel free to reach out and we'll help you out. 😊
