Cardio Training

Cardio training is cardiovascular training, also known as endurance training. By doing endurance activities like swimming, walking, cycling or running over a long period of time the heart rate increases, performance is improved, the cardiovascular system is strengthened and the fat burning process is encouraged. Cardio training can either be done in the open air or on a treadmill or a cross trainer in the gym.

Cardio training is a very important activity for all ages, for any fitness level, to stay healthy for as long as possible. Regular cardio training helps prevent heart disease, obesity and diabetes.

It is recommended to consult a GP or a sports physician for advice to avoid exhaustion or injury. The elderly and those who are severely overweight are advised to do low impact exercises like walking, Nordic walking, cycling or aqua gym because there is less strain on the joints. Heart rate monitors can help to avoid overexertion. Training should also be increased slowly to prevent injury.

As well as improving endurance, regular cardio training can also help burn fat. The training pulse is much lower when burning fat than it is for endurance training.

Regular cardio training has a number of positive effects on the body’s health, both physically and psychologically. For example, increased lung capacity, a stronger immune system, a lower cholesterol level, a better ability to concentrate as well as improved sleep and an improved recovery time after illness.
