    What is the best type of cardio for keto?

    For one, is cardio even needed? I read fitnessmans entire original outline of the diet, and it said only do cardio maybe one time a week.

    I lift heavy on Tuesday, Wed., Friday, Sat., Sunday is an off day. I was thinking of adding cardio in on Mondays and Thursdays. And I was also thinking of adding it in after weight sessions.

    Im 5'7, 170, trying to drop to 155 or so. I'm about 16.5% bodyfat. I've been doing keto for a month now, and have done 2 carb ups, both on saturdays.

    So my question is for the experienced keto'ers on the forum:

    1) Should I even do cardio yet? Or should I wait until I hit a plateau?

    2) If I do cardio, do you recommend I do it after weights and on off days, or just on days I'm not lifting weights?

    3) What type of cardio will be most effective for fat loss? HIIT? LISS? Resistance?

    I've had success with resistance before on an elliptical where I would do 40 minute sessions, and hit a target heart rate of 85% max.

    Another question I have is: Should I do ab work and core work (planks, crunches, etc.) every day? Or just some days? How often?

    Thanks for any answers.

    Should you do core work everyday? No. It you are capable doing core work everyday then you are not doing sufficient core work. A muscle is a muscle. It needs to be stressed and then it needs rest. Work on adding harder exercises or add weights so that you are sore from the workout.

    As for cardio, it is a highly subjective and highly an individual preference. Some will say one thing some will say the exact opposite.

    One thing that can be said across the board is variety is best. Now the exact regimen depends on several factors to the individual (goals, motiviation, time restraints, etc).

    Some people don't mind an hour of walking. Some people need their cardio done is 10 to 20 minutes.

    You're going to have to play trial and error and find what works for you.

    I agree, I think that if you have a lot of body fat to loose then yes, do cardio. I do cardio 5 times a week and weights 3x a week.

    So, yes it is usually up to you
