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.
