The Health Benefits Of
Aerobic Exercise Revealed!

The health benefits of aerobic exercise should be enough for anybody to start working out. You will see these benefits a little later on this page, but first letís go over exactly what aerobic exercise is.

Simply put, aerobic exercise uses large muscle groups to get the heart rate up to a certain level, where it is held for a certain period of time. If youíve heard about the ďtarget zoneĒ, this is what they mean.

Youíre overloading the heart and lungs for a certain period of time, and then letting them rest completely when done. If you do an exercise for a sustained period of time, itís considered aerobic. If itís done in intervals or in short bursts, like sprinting, itís considered anaerobic.

Although I only rarely perform aerobic exercises because I like to keep my workouts short and sweet, and I like to actually have fun while working out, I would suggest it to those folks who are out of shape and just starting a workout program.

Iíll also take a jog every once in awhile just for a mix up of things. I love to mix it up and never let me body get used to anything. One thing I love to do is to go trail running. You probably already know that I get bored easily. Well, I'm not a big fan of jogging but I love to run trails!

Here is a nice long list of the health benefits of aerobic exercise.

  • A Stronger Heart
  • Helps You Cope Easier With Stress
  • The Heart Pumps Out More Blood, Easier
  • Helps You Maintain Weight
  • Resting Heart Rate Slows (This Means Your Heart Is Strong)
  • Youíll Look Better
  • Oxygen Can Be Used More Efficiently
  • Increased Fat Burning During Exercise
  • Faster Recovery Time
  • Increased Cardiovascular Endurance
  • Increased Energy
  • Lower Blood Pressure
  • Reduced Risk In Virtually Every Disease
  • Better Cholesterol Levels

As you can see, aerobic exercise such as walking, jogging, and swimming has some great benefits to your health.

In a perfect workout program, you would combine both aerobic exercises and anaerobic exercises. The health benefits of aerobic exercise that Iíve just laid out for you will still be realized, if you perform anaerobic exercises as well. In fact, doing a mix of them both will bring even greater benefits.
