Day 2 : Cardio

You may incorporate any form of cardio of your choice. Ideally, High Intensity Interval Training should be incorporated for efficient fat loss and to minimise muscle loss.

A good cardio workout involving jogging would look somewhat like this:

1 minute running and 2 minutes power walking, repeat 6-8 times for a total of 20-25 minutes

This form of cardio is known as HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) and has many benefits, most noticeably, less muscle loss and better recovery from weight training.
