What’s the best cardio method? What’s the best strength training program?

As busy as my life has been over the past few months, working out is still something I always make time for. Actually, “make time” is a bit of a misnomer: at this point exercise is so ingrained in my everyday life that it’s just part of my daily existence. I don’t have to “make time” to sleep, drink or or eat – those are things that I “just do”. I’m not quite sure when it happened, but at some point over the past 5 years exercise joined that list.

Many people constantly struggle to maintain any kind of regularity with their exercise routines. I think a big part of the problem is those people have not learned to adopt the proper mindset for longterm success. If you dread your workouts, you’re going to quit eventually. That’s a fact. You’ve got to figure out what you enjoy and keep your workouts fun. If you can’t stand riding a stationary bike for 45 minutes, try high intensity interval training. If you hate doing indoor cardio, take it outside. If you hate cardio completely, play sports! Be honest with yourself about your likes and dislikes.

You’re going to see all kinds of debates over what is the “most effective” type of cardio or what’s the “best” weight training program. If you are new to all this, it can be overwhelming. While some people really enjoy such debates (and there’s nothing wrong with that), I personally find them completely boring. If you are new to training, my advice is to ignore those debates completely. In my opinion, the most effective cardio method and the best weight training program are the ones you ENJOY and will do with regularity.
