LISS stands for low-intensity steady-state cardio. As its name suggests, it is any form of cardio exercise where you maintain the same low-intensity cardio pace (that is, a steady-state) for a set period of time. This is great for joint health and overall cardiovascular endurance.
There are so many types of LISS that you can incorporate into your fitness schedule! The beauty of this type of cardio is that there are so many options for you to choose from - you don't need to stick with just one type of activity.
Here are some suggestions for LISS exercises that you can include in your workout routine. I recommend mixing it up as often as you can to keep it interesting!
- Walking/Light Running at a moderate pace
- Going hiking
- Cycling either on a spin-cycle bike or outdoors
- Recreational activities that can be done at a steady state, such as skateboarding or surfing.
