This is the first time I’ve mentioned cardio in this series. I hate cardio. You hate cardio. Everyone hates cardio except for fucking crazy people. But it is a necessary evil. As it happens, your heart is a muscle. And it’s the muscle that fuel-injects all the rest of your muscles. The underlying theme behind Beast Life has been the purpose for being Beast. Not getting laid, the other purpose. Yes, overcoming your enemies to defend yourself and your family. When fights last more than a few seconds, it is the guy with the most wind who wins. This is true even at the professional level.
Endomorphs will want to use cardio to help cut fat. Cardio training not only burns fat stores, but will increase your over all metabolism throughout the day. I suggest going 30 minutes or more before breakfast. Down a protein shake before you go, to keep from burning muscle. Focus on intervals of intense periods mixed with spans of slow steady periods.
Ectomorphs and mesomorphs may think they don’t need cardio because they are not fat. This is not true. First, you can be lean on the outside and still have arteries full of shit because you’ve lived your whole life eating pizza and ice cream without worry. Second, don’t be lazy ass. Go later in the day to keep from ramping up your metabolism too much. Preferably about an hour after a meal. Also down a protein shake beforehand for muscle support.
Now, the quickest easiest form of cardio is running. Shoes, street, done. However, trying to build a steady cardio routine into your Beast Life by only running can become boring very quickly. I suggest you find 2 or three forms of cardio that you can mix up.
Swimming, biking, and yes, even stationary equipment at your gym. Also, don’t be afraid of sports. Soccer and basketball are great forms of cardio and they never get old. Whatever gets your heart rate up and keeps it up.
