Aerobic exercise provides cardiovascular conditioning. The term aerobic means “with oxygen“, which means that the breathing controls the amount of oxygen that can reach the muscles to help burn fuel and movement.
How much time should I do these exercises?
The American Heart Association recommends everyone to achieve a minimum of 30 minutes of some kind of cardiovascular exercise 5 to 7 days per week.
This can be divided into periods of 10 minutes. This means that taking three 10-minute walks each allow you to reach the recommended minimum guideline to reduce the risk of diseases of the heart, diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol.
Also burns the same number of calories that you would do if you walked for 30 minutes at a time.
The American College of sports medicine recommends a minimum of three sessions of 30 minutes in total, which should be composed of moderate exercise to strong to improve cardio capacity and help control weight.
It is suitable to do aerobic exercise every day. There is no need to rest between sessions unless you’re in an extreme level of training, such as preparing for a marathon, or if you experience pain in the joints is repeated.
If joint pain is a limiting factor, it would be convenient to toggle less painful exercises with which can cause pain in the joints or discontinue the painful exercise completely.
