The Importance Of CV Workouts

Many people may not realise the importance of building a CV workout in to your routine but to understand its importance you only have to look at a bodybuilder to see how much muscle they have while still retaining a low body fat percentage.

CV is important to keep your body fat percentage down and keep a strong healthy heart and circulatory system.

There is many ways to get a CV workout in to your routine, some people go to the gym twice in a day carrying out a CV routine in the morning and lifting weights in the evening while others keep them in two seperate training thing you will notice is that no one carries out a CV workout in the same training session as lifting weights.

Its important to keep your CV workout seperate as you will expend alot of your energy while doing CV and not be able to carry out a strong weight workout.

A very common CV workout many weight lifters and bodybuilders enjoy is running or cycling, even Arnie used to build running sessions in to his workout.

I dont actually have a structured CV workout as I use walking as my CV training, by this I mean that I walk everywhere including the 2.5 miles (3.75 kilometres) home after my weight workout at the gym.

One important note to make is that your CV workout needs to be no more than say 30 minutes in length as sustained CV work means your body could start utilising muscle as an energy source when it is running low on energy.
