Understand the Benefits Of Aerobic Exercise

Aerobic exercise is the fastest track to losing weight and keeping healthy. Each week, aim for at least 150 mins of moderate-intensity exercise (this means you can talk but can’t sing, of if you are using a heat rate monitor, it is 55 -69 percent of your maximum heart rate) for at least 20 mins at a time. This will get your heart rate/circulation up and improve the oxygen flow to your body which, in turn, will help boost your metabolism. If you are looking for other reason to inspire you to exercise, here are just a few:

•Exercising regularly reduces your risk if heart disease, type II diabetes, stroke, certain types of cancer, and osteoporosis.

• Exercising regularly and burning at least 800 calories per week could have a beneficial impact on your cholesterol by raising your HDL (the “good cholesterol”) and lowering your LDL (the “bad cholesterol”) and triglycerides

• Aerobic exercise reduces muscle tension and the amount of stress hormones in your body.

• Aerobic exercise boosts endorphins and releases additional serotonin in your brain, which helps to balance your mood or relieve depression.

• Exercising improves your circulation, which flushes away harmful toxins and protects against fine lines and wrinkles.
