Cardio Exercises - Types

Written by Super Member: LT Thomas

Cardio Exercises - Types Cardio is the medical term used to reference the heart. This is from the Greek word kardia which means heart. Aerobic means oxygen.

Cardio is used in reference to exercises and/or equipment intended for cardiovascular fitness and endurance training (aerobic exercise). "To do cardio" is a common term which means to engage in Running or other endurance training for a set period of time. Having Cardio equipment at home is a great way to be sure to get it in.

Types of Cardio:
  • Riding a bike (any type of bike)
  • Dance class
  • Walking
  • Swimming
  • Use of any type of Aerobic Machine
  • Water Aerobics
Your heart is the most important muscle in your body. Doing Cardio benefits your heart. When you don't engage in aerobic exercises, your heart suffers. Make an effort to do some type of Cardio 3-6 times per week. Even if you only do 15 minutes a day, that is better than nothing at all. Ideally, you want to do 30 minutes a day. It is a process so you must start somewhere.

Do your Cardio, because your heart is counting on you.
