GETTING YOUR CARDIO WORKOUT

Cardio is defined as any type of exercise that causes the heart to beat faster and harder for a period of time. Getting the aerobic effect from cardio involves pushing your heart rate to 70% to 85% of your maximum for 20-60 minutes.  Benefits improve overall health and quality of life, burns fat and calories, strengthens heart and lungs, and reduces your risk of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and some cancers.

Examples of aerobic exercise include:
· Jogging or running
· Brisk walking 
· Bike riding
· Swimming
· Zumba or other types of dance

Cardio machines and aerobic classes are ways to meet your cardio needs.

Interval training is a good way to get your aerobic exercise. Tabata training is a type of interval training. It is a high interval training workout featuring exercise that lasts 4 minutes for 20 seconds working as hard as you can with 10 seconds rest for 6-8 sets. It will work both the aerobic and anaerobic pathways firing up the “after burn” effect, burning more calories throughout the day. It is a faster way to get in your aerobic workout but isn’t for everyone because of the intensity of the exercise. It includes any exercise done quickly and intensely.

The American College of Sports Medicine notes that 20- 60 minutes of vigorous- intensity cardio three days per week is equivalent to 30-60 minutes of moderate-intensity cardio five days per week. Personalize your workout. It can be easy, moderate or challenging. Research shows ANY exercise slows the aging process, mind and body. The best thing for your overall health is to NOT sit. Stay active throughout the day.

Please exercise and eat responsibly.
