Cardio exercises are important for improving your cardiovascular and respiratory system. These are exercises that enhance your oxygen uptake and absorption, blood flow, and help with muscular endurance. Things like walking, running,biking, eliptical training, kick boxing and other aerobic activities.
The exercises that I am providing have a combination of cardio exercises with resistance exercises - which is good for those of you looking for a good fat burning routine.
For a one exercise endurance/cardio workout here’s a tip:
If you are a beginner, do 20-30 minutes of these workouts a day, at the least.
To add more intensity start increasing your time so that you are pushing yourself more each day.
This type of exercise should be done at least 3-5 days a week.
If you need more of a challenge Choose one of these option for a more intense work out and improved results.
Increase your resistance 1. try to maintain it for the entire time
2. prepare an interval for your time (ie: 1 minute resistance on 2 minutes off)
Increase your distance
Increase the frequency of how often you perform the exercise in the week
Change what type of exercise you do (If you always run, switch it up to biking or swimming.)
