Strength Training (2)      Cardiovascular Exercise (1)     
When deciding to get healthy, lose weight and select a new exercise routine, it is important to know how often you should strength train and do cardiovascular exercise. Dieting has proven to be an effective method of losing weight, but in order to maintain weight loss, you need to exercise and plan to lose no more than 1 to 2 pounds per week.

For maximum results, a workout program should consist of the following exercises:

• Cardiovascular (running, fast walking, jogging, riding a bike)

• Strength Training (squats with a shoulder press or deadlift with a bent over row)

• Core Work (planks, crunches, pushup dips)

• Stretching (yoga, pilates)

Keep in mind that cardiovascular exercise isn’t just essential in maintaining good heart health. Cardiovascular exercise can:

• Burn Calories

• Boost Your Mood

• Decrease Stress

Cardiovascular exercise and strength training both play a significant role in targeting weight loss and increasing muscle size. Finding the right balance of the two will depend on your individual goals, how quickly you want to achieve them, and the amount of time you can commit to exercising.
