Practice Cardio Activity Everyday

Some people use to call aerobic activity “cardio”, it could be an exercise in which your heart is pumping oxygenated blood to put your muscles at work. Over time and with regular practice, cardiovascular movement strengthens your heart and allows it to pump blood throughout the body more exactly. The pumping of oxygenated blood strengthens your heart.

Before beginning any cardio activity remember to:

  • Start your cardio exercises at a moderate rhythm, to allow you to warm up correctly.
  • Warm-up, cool down, and stretch.
  • Consult a specialist for a lung and heart evaluation before starting an aerobics program if you are over 40.
  • Do an analysis of musculoskeletal if you have suffered an injury in the past by a sports doctor before starting cardio.

Heart rate

Maximum heart rate change based on your age, you can check yours by using a heart rate calculator. During the cardio activity, your target heart rate should be about 50% to 85% of your maximum heart rate. When you are exercising and your heart rate keeps within this range, you are exercising aerobically and increasing your cardiovascular endurance.

Then, if your heart rate is below or above 50% to 85% of maximum, you are not exercising aerobically and won’t improve your endurance.

Improve heart and lungs

The key to improving cardiorespiratory endurance is to strengthen your lungs and heart so that when you practice any activity, you will be able to do it more easily and longer.

It is always recommended to talk to your doctor before engaging in any aerobics & fitness activity. Once you check that everything is correct, strengthening your endurance is a good start to enjoy life and get in better shape.

Repetitive exercises

When you work a muscle a lot of times by pulling, pushing, extending, and flexing, you increment the endurance of that muscle. While muscle endurance is different from physical fitness and cardiorespiratory endurance, usually when you improve one, you are also improving the other in the muscle groups you are working out for the motion.

In general, when you try a cardio activity you are engaging in moderately strenuous motions, repetitive that include small and large muscle groups. You can include into your routine repetitive activities, such as dancing, walking, jumping rope, jogging, swimming, or less repetitive, but still strenuous exercises, such as yoga or karate.
