cardiac output

Aerobics and Cellular Respiration

What kind of goals can be achieved by aerobics? (we already assume ‘look like Jane Fonda’ is one of them.)

Increasing the overall cardiac output of your heart
Increasing the size of your heart and ventricles, which will allow for continued elevated cardiac output, not just during exercise, but into the future of your cardiac health.
Fueling cellular respiration processes in the body with fat cells, training them to use more than just carbohydrates as an energy source.
Increased Fat Burning when not engaged in Activity.



We can’t measure the strength of our heart in the same way we can measure our chest by how much we can push up, or press. We can only measure where it starts at rest, the highest rate it can maintain at maximal effort, and how quickly it recovers when exertion is over. Knowing your resting heart rate is critical to understanding your heart health and accomplishing your cardiovascular training goals.
