Ideal Workout for the Carb Lover

Do you love carbs? Are pasta, rice and bread part of your daily diet? Can you not live without these foods? If you answer yes to any of these questions, then yes, you are a certified carb lover. If that's the case, you'd also love these workout ideas that can help keep your shape well-trimmed.

The Outdoor Walk Workout
1) Walk at a moderate pace for about five minutes. Intensity should be around three to four. This will serve as your warm up.
2) Pick up the pace for three minutes so that the intensity increases to six or seven.
3) Increase pace even further to intensity eight. Do this for two minutes. Take shorter but faster steps. Be sure to drive your bent elbows back and let the hips move from side to side.
Repeat) Repeat the second and third steps five times more.

The Treadmill Workout
1) Start with moderate pace for five minutes. Intensity should be from three to four. There shouldn't be an incline. This will serve as your warm up.
2) Pick up the speed to six or seven for about three minutes.
3) Increase speed to intensity eight and the incline by 2 to 3 percent. Do this for two minutes.
Repeat) Repeat the second and third steps five times more.

Elliptical Workout
1) For this, you need to use light resistance with a medium ramp. Intensity of about three to four for five minutes should be your warm up routine.
2) Keep the light resistance and raise the ramp to high for about three minutes.
3) Aim for six to seven intensity. Raise the ramp to increase resistance. For two minutes, walk at a higher speed of about eight.
Repeat) Then repeat the second and third steps five times more.

Bike Workout
1) To begin this workout, pedal at medium speed of about three to four intensity. Do this for five minutes to warm up.
2) Increase speed to moderate intensity of about six to seven. Do this for three minutes.
3) After that, you can increase intensity again to eight for another two minutes.
Repeat) Repeat second and third steps five times more.

Each of these workouts can be done every day for about half an hour. Imagine, that's just 30 minutes of your day and you're already able to do so much for your health. You can do these at home if you have a bike or treadmill, or at the gym. These workout ideas combine cardio and strength training to keep yourself fit. These also allow you to burn 900 extra calories and trim three inches off your belly, thighs and hips.

Getting regular exercise is a crucial part of healthy living. Not only would your physical health benefit from it, it would also do your mental health a favor keeping depression, stress and anxiety at bay. Physical activity boosts the production of feel-good chemicals in the brain.
