Aerobic exercises are part of a balanced personal training regimen that can get your blood pumping and make your larger muscle groups more robust and active. Aerobic exercises can also be referred to as cardiovascular physical activity. Experts recommend at least 75 to 150 minutes of aerobic exercise every week. Depending on the intensity you want for aerobic exercise, you can choose running or cycling for more vigorous exercise, and brisk walking or swimming for moderate aerobic exercise. If you want to learn how aerobic exercise can be beneficial for your body, read all about it below:
Reduction in Chronic Pain
For people who suffer from chronic body pain or back pain, you can reduce the discomfort by doing cardiovascular exercises. Low-impact activities such as water aerobics, swimming, and brisk walking can help improve muscle function and build endurance. Exercise can also help you lose weight to reduce chronic back pain further.1
According to a study, aerobic exercise can help overweight individuals lose weight and keep fit, even if their diets are the same as before.2 You can take a brisk walk before your breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Depending on your walking speed and body weight, you can choose a healthy aerobic exercise to help you burn more calories according to your body goals.
Improves Cardiovascular Health
Aerobic exercise is highly recommended to individuals with or at risk of heart disease. Regular aerobic exercise can strengthen your heart and keep it pumping blood throughout your body efficiently. Cardiovascular activity can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure if you complete your aerobic personal training for almost 40 minutes every day.3
