Health Benefits of Cardio Fitness

Cardio, short for Cardiovascular Exercise, relates to any movement that gets your heart rate up and increases your blood circulation throughout the body. There are various ways and methods to perform cardio exercises.

Improved Heart Health: 

Your heart is also a muscle just like any other muscle in our body and in order for it to become strong it needs to be worked out.  And if you don’t work it out, it will surely get weaker over time and this can cause a variety of negative health effects and diseases. So getting your heart to pump at a faster rate on a regular basis you maintains its shape and health. Lots of people today are getting winded by just performing simple exercises like walking up the stairs and the primary reason is they are neglecting to work for their heart muscle.

And in such a situation Hydrospafitness’s Cardio Machines make you work up your heart muscle to keep it healthy and long living.

Oxygen Consumption :

All that oxygen being pumped by the blood is important. You may be familiar with the term “oxygen consumption.” In science, it’s labeled VO2, or volume of oxygen consumed. It’s the amount of oxygen the muscles extract, or consume from the blood, and it’s expressed as ml/kg/minute (milliliters per kilogram of body weight). Muscles are like engines that run on fuel (just like an automobile that runs on fuel); only our muscles use fat and carbohydrates instead of gasoline. Oxygen is a key player because, once inside the muscle, it’s used to burn fat and carbohydrate for fuel to keep our engines running. The more efficient our muscles are at consuming oxygen, the more fuel we can burn, the more fit we are, and the longer we can exercise.

Improved Recovery Ability :

Certain types of Cardio Exercise, usually lower, more moderately paced forms, can decrease your recovery time too. If you have just performed a hard session in the gym, hopping on the treadmill for a walk or light jog will help to remove some of the by-products that were created during the lifting session. This will help to reduce your DOMS (delayed onset of muscle soreness) and help bring more oxygen rich blood to the muscle tissue improving in the repair and rebuilding process. To you, this translates to your being able to get back into the gym quicker and work the muscles again.
