Boost Your Metabolism
The secret to permanent weight loss is training your body to be a more efficient calorie-burning engine by maximizing your metabolism. Metabolism is the rate at which a person burns energy, and this is measured in calories. When you increase your muscle and participate in cardiovascular activity, you boost your resting metabolic rate and burn more calories when you are doing nothing. Cardio training and strength training when paired together provide a protective effect against a drop in metabolism, so it is important to have a good balanced dose of both.
Enhance Cardio Fitness
Cardio is an essential part of any fitness regimen, and you should strive to engage in cardiovascular activity several time a week. Any type of exercise that elevates your heart rate and triggers perspiration produces a metabolism boost that burns fat and calories, and it is crucial to your cardiovascular health. It also enhances your wellbeing, as it stimulates the production of endorphins and elevates your mood.
Heart Healthy Decision
Cardio is another term for aerobic exercise. Cardio exercise simply refers to your heart, specifically, getting your heart rate up and keeping it elevated for a certain period of time. Doing cardio will increase the efficiency of the circulation of your blood, which leads to more nutrients being delivered throughout your body, courtesy of better flowing blood. It also acts to fight off the tendency for you to develop high blood pressure. The number of red blood cells will increase, and this has the beneficial effect of ensuring that more oxygen is delivered all throughout your body.
In increasing Cardio fitness, your endurance levels will go up because your muscles will be more capable of storing energy-producing molecules such as those from carbohydrates and fats. You'll also see your body improve the rate at which aerobic metabolism is started up in your muscles; this permits a larger share of your energy for heavy-duty exercise to be produced aerobically. Finally, your recuperation time increases from doing cardio, the time it takes for your muscles to recuperate after doing demanding workouts.
Balance Sweat & Hydration
Every time you sweat your body loses water, and you sweat every day regardless of whether you notice it or not. Your body loses about 10% of its daily water through sweat and even more if you exercise during the day. Therefore, you need to make sure that you replenish your body with water often. You should get 64 ounces of water into your system everyday. Some require more and some require less, but if you get about 8 glasses of water a day, you're getting enough. For every 15 minutes of exercise, you have 8 to 10 ounces of water.
