Deena Reviews Cardio Juvenate and Getting Better Workouts

on December 9, 2011

Deena’s experience with the l-arginine supplement Cardio Juvenate is like many others. She noticed increased energy, better workouts, and she was finally able to find that ‘zone’ that you quite often hear about while at the gym. But what is ‘the zone’ and how do you know you’ve reached it?

 

Healthy Heart Zone

The healthy heart zone is a zone most often found by active walkers. It is a comfortable zone, 50 to 60% of your maximum heart rate, and is comfortable to achieve. In this zone, your body will burn 10% carbs, 5% protein, and 85% fat in order to create energy. 

 

Fitness Zone

This zone is a bit more intense, but still only 60 to 70% of your maximum heart rate and somewhat easy to achieve. You will burn more calories, and get tired quicker.

 

Aerobic Zone

You’re amping up your workouts in this zone, pushing your heart rate to 70 to 80% of the maximum. This is the training zone for endurance, improves circulatory health, and increases heart rate and lung capacity. In this zone you only burn 1% protein, and 50% carbs and fat. This is the ideal zone for maximum heart benefits.

 

Anaerobic Zone

In this zone you are at 80 to 90% of your maximum heart rate. This workout is intense, extremely difficult, and done in short intervals. Your body will be taken to the limit, and thus will start to produce lactic acid. In this zone, your body will be burning mostly carbs to gain energy, some fat, and very little protein.

 

Red-Line Zone

In this zone you are at 90 to 100% of your maximum heart rate. This zone should only be driven for after speaking to your doctor about your heart health. It should be used in extremely short intervals, perhaps one to two minutes at a time.
