Cardio training causes the heart, lungs and circulatory system to work harder in support of working muscles. Cardio training increases the need for blood and nutrients in working muscles and increases the amount of waste products that must be removed from those muscles.
Regular cardiorespiratory exercise can help you to; lose weight, reduce stress, decrease fatigue and improve sports performance. Other powerful benefits of regular cardio training include a decreased risk of; obesity, coronary artery disease, type II diabetes, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, high cholesterol, anxiety and certain types of cancer.
It sounds almost like the magic bullet. Cardiovascular health may be a better predictor of mortality than obesity according to the British Journal of Sports Medicine. So get your daily dose, whether it is a walk after dinner or a workout in the gym. Get that heart pumping and blood flowing!
