The best sports and exercises to increase your cardio

Why increasing your cardio is good for your health?

When we talk about “cardio”, we are referring to all activity relating to the heart . Indeed, just like the rest of your body, it is very important to train your heart muscle . In addition to the fact that during your sessions, you will be more efficient, you will also be more enduring in your daily life.


Working on your cardio allows you to both strengthen your immune system and eliminate fat around the heart, and thus prevent many diseases. Being tough also means better oxygenation of muscle tissue. You will therefore be able to provide more intense efforts, for longer.

How to become more enduring?

If you want to increase your cardio, you need to train intensely but for a shorter duration. The goal is for your BPM (beats per minute) to be high, which indicates high heart muscle activity.

Running

Classic, but unavoidable, running is accessible to all and very simple to start. However, good equipment and some specialist advice are recommended to avoid injury. To be effective, you must practice in intervals, with short high-intensity sessions followed by short breaks.


Thus, your heart rate will be elevated very quickly and you will also burn more calories. Thanks to this training technique, your endurance will increase faster than with long exercises of moderate intensity.

burpees

This known exercise is very interesting when you want to develop your cardio. Indeed, it works the whole body , and can be adapted according to its objectives. By alternating standing and floor positions, usually with jumps , the heart rate increases rapidly. You can also spice up the exercise with push-ups for even more intensity.

spinning

Spinning or cycling consists of intensive indoor cycling ! Always with a view to working on your cardio, the rhythm is alternated between very fast sequences with greater difficulty , and slower sequences to recover.


The advantage of this type of activity is that it is collective , so you can motivate yourself with other participants!

cross fit

This sport, which has become very popular, combines bodybuilding and endurance . Indeed, the body works as a whole with intense exercises and little recovery time. Thus, the heart rate is maintained at a certain intensity, which makes it possible to work the heart muscles.

Jumping rope

Jumping rope is often underestimated, yet it's a great way to increase stamina. It is very accessible and can be practiced everywhere, you can use it during your warm-up , or as a real fitness exercise.


Always applying the system of alternating between high intensity and short recovery period, the jump rope is ideal for cardio exercises.
