5 BENEFITS of CARDIO
For some the word CARDIO is a feared word but for others it is a real passion of which they never seem to have enough.
Be that as it may, cardio training is a key element in any fitness plan..
Cardio, is short for cardiovascular exercise, is a movement that marks our heart rate and increases blood circulation throughout the body. There are different ways to work this type of exercise, everything will depend on the objective we pursue.
In general, the vast majority of people use cardio to burn calories in excess, remember that the calorie is a unit of energy and the greater the movement, increased need to consume energy.
Despite fat loss, this type of training generates multiple benefits for our health, and this is where we are going to focus our article today.
1 – Improves heart health:
The heart after all is a muscle and if we want it to stay strong we have to make it work, if on the contrary we do not train it over time it will weaken and this will cause multiple negative effects on our health.
By making our heart pump at a faster rate we are giving it a great foundation to stay in shape., in fact it is very common to see people who when they have climbed a few stairs snort, and this is usually due to a lack of work in the heart muscle.
2 – Increases metabolism:
Another reason for cardiovascular exercise is its effects on metabolism, along with accelerating our heart rate, Cardiovascular exercise also increases the speed of other processes in the body, also known as metabolism.
Generally speaking, the more intense the cardio session, more noticeable is the increase in regards to our metabolic rate..
Intense sprint intervals (also known as HIIT) are the best way to increase metabolism with a process called COPD (excess oxygen consumption after exercise)
Remember that an increase in the pace of our metabolism makes it easier for us to stay at our weight.
3 – Improvement of our hormonal profile:
Performing cardiovascular exercise also considerably modifies the hormonal profile in our body. We release hormones that help us relieve the symptoms of depression and fatigue, as well as releasing hormones that decrease appetite.
People who regularly exercise cardiovascularly have a much more positive view of life simply because they are receiving the benefits of stress relief and stress brought on by these hormones..
4 – Improves our muscular recovery capacity:
Some types of cardiovascular exercise, usually the softest and at a moderate pace, can help us reduce our recovery time as well.
Jogging at a light pace after a training session will help us reduce muscle inflammation (delay in the onset of muscle pain) and will help us bring more oxygen to the blood, thus facilitating the process of recovery and muscle reconstruction.
Remember that we should not exceed either in the intensity or in the duration of the post-training work since then more than helping us, it would tighten our muscles and cause the opposite effect, slowing down our recovery.
5 – It is a basic treatment against diabetes:
Last, for those who have diabetes, cardiovascular exercise helps them to better carry this condition. By exercising we increase the muscle's ability to use glucose. Those who exercise regularly tend to have better blood sugar control, and this is very beneficial for diabetics, as they are extremely sensitive to changes in blood sugar levels.
The first goal is simply to find an activity that gets us moving and increases our heart rate..
Any type of is valid, take a walk, cycling a collective sport. The important thing is to keep your body moving.".
Remember that between 30 and 45 minutes 3 to 5 days a week are more than enough for us to notice the benefits of this wonderful type of training.
