Cardio Exercises

Cardio exercises, more accurately, cardiovascular exercises, are those that have the primary goal of exercising the heart and circulatory system. These types of exercises are often referred to as aerobics exercises. Although I choose to use this word, the error is that all exercises, even strength training, work the heart. So, there are no, non-cardio exercises. But, for the sake of speaking the same language, let’s refer to cardio exercises as those that are not strength based, but can be used for cardiovascular health and calorie burning.

It’s also important to note that cardio exercises can be performed for a long time if the intensity is kept low (aerobic), or shorter bursts of higher intensity (anaerobic).
