Improtantance of Cardiovascular Exercises

Cardiovascular Exercises And Why It's Good For The Health

Cardiovascular (or simply cardio) exercise is the same as aerobic exercise. It is meant to improve oxygen levels in the blood and raises your heart rate so you will burn more energy, calories and fat. Some of the best cardio exercises are jogging, cycling, treadmill, rowing machine, stair climbing, swimming or skating; basically anything that makes you sweat and move around faster

Cardiovascular exercise is very good for your health, especially if you have a sitting job and you don't move enough in your daily routine. Your muscles get sore, your neck and back hurts, you feel tired and stressed. All that can be taken away by just 20 minutes or cardio three times a week. Here are some of the benefits of cardiovascular exercises:


  • Stronger lungs and heart

  • Weight loss

  • Less stress

  • Smaller risk of heart conditions

  • Better sleep

  • Increased bone density

  • More confidence

  • More energy


Most of the time when we speak of cardio, we think it's the best way to lose weight. However, as you can see from above, it has many other benefits as well. Don't let weight loss be the only reason you exercise. Do it for you overall health and well being and you will enjoy it much more.


Sometimes it's hard to go out and exercise, however, cardio is the easiest to do as it requires no equipment, you can do it anywhere, any time. For example you can go jogging one day, swimming a few days later and instead of driving to the grocery store on Saturday, go by bicycle. This way it hardly even feels like a workout. And what the outcome will be – a thinner, happier and healthier you!
