Cardiofitness: what it is and why you should practice it

No matter your age or starting level, cardiovascular training is accessible to everyone and can be customised to meet individual needs.

The importance of exercise for overall well-being is now a given.

Among the many sports disciplines, cardiofitness, or cardiovascular training, is essential to keep the body and mind in perfect shape.

It involves aerobic activities such as running, swimming, cycling, jumping rope and the use of cardio equipment such as the treadmill or elliptical, and aims to improve the health of the cardiovascular system by engaging various muscles, particularly those of the heart and lungs, to increase oxygen carrying capacity and resistance to fatigue.

Cardiofitness is essential for maintaining a healthy heart and preventing many cardiovascular diseases. In fact, during training the heart pumps more blood, increasing its flow to the whole body, along with oxygen. This helps to decrease the risk of high blood pressure, improve the lipid profile, and fight fat storage.

In addition, it helps regulate blood sugar levels, lowering the chances of developing type 2 diabetes.

Workout and Benefits of Cardiofitness

Now that we understand what cardiofitness is and what it’s for, let’s take a look at how to exercise effectively and the benefits that come with it.

Let’s start by saying that it is a discipline that offers various options and allows everyone to customise their path to achieve specific goals: cardiovascular training can be adapted to different levels of fitness, thus becoming accessible to everyone, regardless of age or physical condition.

Sessions should be planned in a balanced way, taking into account key aspects such as frequency, intensity, and variety.

A popular approach involves at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise or 75 minutes of high-intensity exercise each week.

However, as mentioned, those guidelines may change based on individual needs.

Variety in training is important to prevent adaptation and maintain enthusiasm in the long run: you can experiment with different cardiovascular activities, such as running, swimming, cycling, jumping rope and the use of cardio equipment such as the treadmill or elliptical. The gradual progression in intensity helps to stimulate the body steadily and achieve improvements in endurance.

Another key aspect is recovery: the body must have time to recover between training sessions to avoid overtraining and injury.

Now let’s move on to the many benefits of cardiofitness.

First, it boosts cardiovascular function, strengthening the heart and reducing resting cardiac work.

It also increases endurance, allowing you to perform physical activities for longer and with less effort.

It promotes weight loss, as it burns calories and excess fat, and controls blood sugar levels, lowering the risk of developing type 2 diabetes and facilitating blood sugar management in those who already have it.

In addition, it has a positive impact on mental health, as it stimulates the production of endorphins, known as “happiness hormones,” and keeps stress and anxiety away.

Finally, cardiovascular training helps you sleep better and counteracts cardiovascular diseases, including hypertension, arteriosclerosis and heart attack, becoming a key component of a 360-degree healthy lifestyle.
