If you’re tapped into the fitness world on Instagram, you may have heard of LISS training. LISS stands for Low-Intensity Sustained State. Basically, LISS is any cardio activity that’s done at a low intensity for 30 – 60 minutes. Whether you’re walking, biking, swimming, or rowing, you’re doing a LISS workout if you maintain the same pace the whole time and don’t exceed 70% of your maximum heart rate.
This cardio method has been gaining popularity because the workouts are relatively easy to complete while still allowing you to burn significant calories. Learn more about types of LISS training and their benefits from MyHealthKC.
