The research has been done, and the results have been out for quite some time: cardiovascular workouts are imperative to a long, healthy life.
Whether it’s a daily walk or intense run on the treadmill, there are so many benefits to getting your heart rate up!
Working out your heart with cardiovascular exercise makes that beating all the stronger. When your heart is strong, it doesn’t have to work so hard to pump, adding years to your ticker.
By keeping it in tip-top shape, it helps lower your chances of heart disease and diabetes. Both of which are life threatening and far too common in our society.
By committing to a daily cardio workout, be it big or small, you can lower your chances of those, and many other illnesses. Talk about a small change with a big, long-lasting impact!
Consider doing either a thirty-minute cardio session each day, or several that add up to thirty minutes.
And of course, check with your doctor first to make sure you’re healthy enough to take on this amount of exercise. And don’t forget your rest days. Even with a goal in mind, you want to give your body time to rejuvenate and heal.
