Is A Cardio Routine Really That Important?
26 August 2021
The short answer is “yes”! Cardiovascular exercise is critical to the most important muscle in your body, your heart. There is no more simple way to say it. You must exercise your heart in order to live a long and happy life.
Now, before you start a cardio routine, it is important to do a few things. First, you medical care team is always to be considered a most trusted consultant in virtually every area of physical and mental health. Talk to you medical team about the importance and types of fitness that is best for you. One of the things they (and we) will consult you from the start is the importance of determining and working in and around your “target heart rate”.
With your target heart rate defined, we’ll help you develop fitness routines that warms you up, puts you in, and gently takes you out of your target heart rate. Exercising within your target heart rate is essential to heart health and a most efficient way to burn calories. Cardio fitness routines helps you maintain your weight once you have reached your weight goal. Cardio strengthens your heart so it does not have to work as hard to pump blood in your body. Cardio fitness increases your lung capacity. It reduces the risks of heart disease, heart attacks, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and diabetes.
That’s a lot of goodness there. Oh, might we add that cardio fitness simply makes you feel good, sleep better, and reduce stress.
