My cut am cardio

I am doing am cardio and as it is unfuelled am really struggling to get energy together to get a real sweat on. I have read in other posts that it should be low intensity anyway. What would that be, a walk on an incline on a treadmill? A steady pedal on a bike?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions as to the best exercises and how to perform them

:-)

    Hi mate i think a good pace is when you would still be able to hold a conversation, but breathing would be slightly labored, this is how i was told and have read,

    Like rhez said it would be a nie gentle pace, say you run 7 min miles with a sweat on I would do 10 min miles so it's a gentle jog.

    Try a 200mg caffeine tablet 30min beforehand! that'll get you going in the morning.

    As for intensity, go until you are warm, maybe a slight sweat. When you find the zone, you'll find the right pace naturally and stick at it...

    You could also invest in a HR monitor to help you find the right zone...
