Cardiovascular exercise is crucial for weight loss, especially as we age.
Not all types of cardio are equally effective for weight loss.
Fitness experts recommend high-intensity interval training (HIIT) for faster weight loss over 40.
HIIT involves short bursts of intense exercise followed by periods of rest or low-intensity exercise.
HIIT has been shown to increase metabolism and burn more calories than steady-state cardio.
HIIT can be done with a variety of exercises, including running, cycling, and bodyweight exercises.
Before starting any new exercise program, it's important to consult with a doctor or certified fitness professional.
