5 Reasons Why Aerobic Exercises Are Important

March 19, 2017

No Aer?

 

Yea count me out! And by Aer we are referring to Aerobic exercises! You know that boring period spent walking or running into a black hole on a treadmill?

 

 

 

Many people shy away from aerobic exercise for the same reason I do! IT'S BORING! Or maybe it feels like hard work or better yet you have a strong hatred for it! I’ve heard it from all types of people. From your regular gym goers, all the way to body builders. They all express how much they hate cardio.  However, the importance of aerobic exercises is often underestimated.

 

Aerobic exercise is any exercise that strengthens your heart and lungs by making them work hard for several minutes of more.

 

5 benefits of aerobic exercises

  1. It strengthens muscles involved in breathing and to increase lung function.

  2. It increases the number of red blood cells in the body and enable greater oxygen use in the body.

  3. It strengthens heart muscles which will improve resting heart rate and pumping efficiency.

  4. It reduces stress and tension therefore increasing your mental well-being.

  5. It increases circulation throughout the day.
