Health Benefits Of Cardiovascular Exercise Training – How Cardio Affects The Body

In this video we discuss the benefits of cardiovascular exercise training and how cardio affects the body.


Benefits of cardio
Cardio or cardiovascular exercise which is any type of exercise that raises your heartbeat can have dramatic effects on not only your level of fitness, but on overall health as well.

Your respiratory and cardiovascular systems work together to deliver oxygen you breathe in to all parts of your body and doing regular cardio exercise sessions strengthens both of these systems and many of the organs in these systems.

Regular cardio exercise can help increase lung capacity, or the amount of air your lungs can hold, it can also strengthen your heart. Over time, if you stay consistent in doing cardio training, your heart becomes more efficient as it pumps more blood per beat that it did before. So, the heart can pump more oxygen rich blood throughout the body with less beats. This also means that your resting heart beat will decrease, making it much more efficient.

Regular cardio exercise paired with good nutritional habits can also help in fat loss. Burning more calories than you take in is key to weight loss, and doing regular cardio sessions is a great way to increase the amount of calories your body is burning.

Your stamina will also improve, walking long distances becomes easier, and you won’t get as tired doing regular activities such as going up stairs, doing housework, or taking care of the yard.

Cardio can help to improve sleep. Regular cardio sessions can help people fall asleep faster and enjoy a deeper sleep. It can also improve sleep duration, and decrease middle of the night wake ups providing a better overall sleep quality.

Regular bouts of cardio training can improve brain function. It can help improve circulation of blood to the brain and promote the health of blood vessels in the brain and it can stimulate the release of beneficial chemicals in the brain.

Cardio training can also help improve athletic performance. Specific training sessions can improve speed, and balance and coordination, all of which are important in sports. It can also decrease the risk of injuries and improve overall endurance.

Regular cardio sessions can also reduce the risk of some health factors such as cardiovascular disease, and developing type 2 diabetes. Regular cardio training can also increase your chances of living longer.

    Don’t let anybody tell you cardio is useless and not important like lifting weights. Cardio is far more important not just for fat loss but for a stronger immune system a stronger heart better endurance, lower blood pressure lower risk of cancer. Healthy supple blood vessels, better skin better digestion health the list is endless. So if any fitness instructor tells you cardio eats at muscle or weights is superior and you shouldn’t do it tell them to get stuffed.

    I am doing cardio for fatloss, but it has also helped my mental health as it releases dopamine and seretonin. Nice video

    Is it true that running long distances decrease testosterone level , some studies say that exercise and running increase testosterone while other studies say that running extreme long distances decrease testosterone , what’s your opinion?

    I started jogging in late 2014 for weight loss. I was so out of shape, I couldn’t walk one block without massive foot and back pains. But day by day, and little by little, with no rush or expectations other than to be healthy, I slowly got used to running. These days I run 4 miles daily. Sometimes I barely even feel the workout. I’m 42, and I’m in the best shape I’ve been since I was 16!
    If a lazy mess like me can do it, you can do it too!!!

    This is so full of knowledge! I have been trying to research for video similar to yours that really explains the topics in this video. 🩺Your explanation reminds me of the channel from Dr Ethan. Dr Ethan’s explanations are helpful and he really helped me a lot on my practice! He is an insightful med student in the UK and he teaches conditions!

    I recommend you see his YT out and give Dr Ethan a like! 👉 #StudentDoctorEthan

    I reduced 33 lbs with cardio and strength training… i checked my blood pressure.. it was 117 by 74

  41. Marcus Weldon on May 29, 2022 at 10:42 pm

    Cardio exercise everyday increased my energy levels. Keeps me in a better mood. But most of all Stress Free

  42. Jason Black on May 29, 2022 at 10:42 pm

    I am off an inhaler now after losing 40lbs. I use to weigh 182lbs and now I’m at 143lbs. I’m 5’8” and have never felt better. I run 7mph for 36min on the treadmill 3 times a week = 3.2mi per session. Been doing it for 10mos now and I look and feel great! What a game changer just that simple change in my life has made. It’s also made me realize that most people are lazy and will never try to improve their looks or health. Statistically only 5% of the population exercises, that’s pretty awful! -Yeah, look that statistic up!

    Many Americans consider the distance from the couch to the fridge to be a good cardio vascular.

  48. Jhsnva on May 29, 2022 at 10:48 pm

    Hello, I would be very glad if you answer this question. I just came across an article on a website. It is said that jumping and running during cardio can cause sagging of the face. That is right?

  49. Hypz on May 29, 2022 at 10:51 pm

    no just no.

  50. Maddison Cutler on May 29, 2022 at 10:53 pm
