Cardiovascular exercise is a huge contributor (for the better) to living longer, stronger, and healthier. But it’s not always easy to figure out how hard you should be working out. And how do you know the best way to plan out your schedule to meet your goals and have it fit into your calendar. 

Tune in to this episode of The Longevity Gym, and hear Pam Strand, personal trainer, address these issues and demystify cardiovascular exercise. 

Pam discusses:

  • How cardiovascular exercise benefits your body and what parts of the body become healthier when you do your cardio training. 
  • How your vital signs improve
  • How cardio makes you feel better and have more energy for life
  • What the important guidelines are for how much and how intense 
  • A simple planning guideline that makes it a breeze to figure out what to do fit this type of exercise into your schedule and your life. 
  • What to do if you are a beginner or getting back into exercise after time off
  • How you can up your game if you are already fit.

Remember to always exercise at a level that is safe and healthy for you. If you have any questions, be sure to check in with your doctor and follow any guidelines that they provide. 

This episode is part of a two part series looking at cardiovascular exercise. Be sure to listen to the next episode to learn more.  In Episode 14, Pam discusses how to calculate your target heart rate zones and to measure your fitness progress.
