#92 - All About That Cardio with Ashleigh Vanhouten

MetFlex and Chill

To watch this episode, please visit Rachel’s YouTube channel. Listeners can find Ashleigh Vanhouten at http://ashleighvanhouten.com/, and on Instagram @themusclemaven. In this episode, Ashleigh and I talk about using cardio as a tool, different fuel sources associated with cardio, how to get the most out of cardio depending on your goal, benefits to low intensity versus high intensity cardio, and more! "Your body doesn't change overnight. But you also probably don't want to pick one workout methodology and one diet and stick to it for the next 25 years." Ashleigh Vanhouten "When we're talking about cardio for fat loss, you definitely don't want to become efficient at it. The more efficient you get, the less calorie burn occurs. If you're doing cardio to train for a sport, like a marathon, it's the opposite. You want to become more efficient because you want to get faster and use less energy." Rachel Gregory Top Takeaways: Mental and physical importance of living in a maintenance phase Overall health benefits that come from the C-Word How and when to use cardio as a tool The benefits and drawbacks of LISS vs. HIIT Today’s Questions: I listened to your Cardio Confusion podcast and wondered, once you MEET your goals, what do you suggest next? You really can’t keep increasing because as you said, you’re going to burn out! Do you take a break? Do you switch goals?? How long of a break before you go ‘type A’ gung ho again? I do a brisk walk every morning (30-45 mins heart rate range between 115-135.. around 5k steps). Would that be considered “doing cardio” or “just getting your steps in”.. I listened to your Cardio Confusion podcast but still not sure if I should be doing this walk every morning. Thoughts? What is the best cardio while following a keto diet? HIIT for more fat burn or LISS as it is a more ketogenic fueled activity? Do I have to do cardio to lose weight, if I feel like I’ve maximized everything else and I’m still holding on to fat (diet, sleep, stress, weight lifting) What if I like cardio and endurance stuff like long hikes, long bikes, long runs? Do I still have to eat carbs to support this? Or can I be super low carb or carnivore and still perform well at like endurance. What are your favorite forms of cardio? Show Notes: [0:00] Hey MetFlex and Chill Listeners!
