What Should I Do For Cardio?

Intensity factors: Upright aerobic activities hit the goals the hardest, due to gravity’s effect on blood circulation. The heart has to work harder to return the blood from pooling legs to the heart. This doesn’t happen when cardiovascular exercises are performed in a supine or prone position. Prone is represented in plank and supine is lying with the spine on the ground. Upright activity demands the heart to maintain forceful contractions for as long as you maintain the activity. The more you train aerobically, the greater the benefits will be for your heart’s health and strength even when you are at rest.

Cardio-Vascular

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.

Understanding [the] Body

Body: The body needs movement above all else.

Body: Your muscles are what give you the strength and ability to move, and complex movement like running, all the sport playing in the world, lifting enormous amounts of weight or just holding your body upright as an ocean wave tries to take you down, even something as silly as rolling onto your side when being tickled, and best of all self-healing. Each muscle big and tiny are working together, sometimes with the same effort, and sometimes against one another in order to give balance and grace to your effort.
