How Much Cardio Should I Do Per Week For Maximum Fat Loss?

When suggesting a fitness routine for people who want to lose fat, I don’t recommend more than 2 hours of steady-state cardio a week.


However, this is not enough and needs to be complemented by doing strength training 3 times a week. Many people make the mistake of doing only cardio for hours and lose a lot of lean muscle in the process.


If you have good fitness levels, you can completely replace steady-state cardio with HIIT. Then you will only be required to do 2-3 sessions of HIIT, 20 min per session.


Overall, 3–6 hours of total activity is more than enough to achieve any goal.


If you want to know the science behind creating your own workout plans, I have created a free course, The FBX Training, which you can enroll in by clicking on the course image at the end of this answer.


I hope this helps 🙂
