Cardiovascular training

The next important exercise is Cardiovascular Training. Cardiovascular means “The Heart” and “Blood Vessels”. It has to do with how quick our heart can pump blood to our muscles to provide them with oxygen.

Our heart is a muscle just like all our other muscles. It is the strongest and most active muscle in our bodies. Just like other muscles, the more we use it, the stronger it gets. When we have a strong heart, it can pump blood quicker and provide our muscles with more oxygen to help them keep going.

This is why when our heart can’t keep up with what we’re asking from it, we automatically breath much faster and harder. This is to make up the difference in oxygen. We have to bring much more oxygen into our body in order to keep going. When we have a very strong cardiovascular system, we can stay active for a long time before we start huffing and puffing for oxygen. This is how marathon runners can run for so long without collapsing.

A great way to exercise your cardiovascular system is by running. Running is the most common, and one of the most effect cardiovascular exercises. The reason is because it requires the use of nearly every muscle in our body. That’s a lot of muscles for the heart to provide oxygen to.

We can either run outside or run on a treadmill. Treadmills are great because they keep the pace up automatically, and we can track our time and distance easily. Plus it has been proven that we are 5x more likely to get on a treadmill and run in the comfort of our own home rather than face the weather outside.
