Aerobic Exercise for Heart Health
Aerobic exercise is any type of cardiovascular conditioning that involves all the big muscle groups in your body. During cardiovascular conditioning, breathing and heart rate increase for a sustained period of time. Examples of aerobic exercise include walking, swimming laps, running, or cycling.
Your heart is a muscle that needs to be exercised to stay healthy. Aerobic exercise helps your heart stay healthy and even small bouts of exercise help your heart work more efficiently.
