We know that the practice of exercise is healthy for our welfare. We also know that aerobic exercise, also known as “cardio”, are ideal for achieving a dream figure. But why is this?
What is cardiovascular exercise?
It is called aerobic or cardiovascular exercise that requires a constant combustion of oxygen in the body. To do this, the exercises are done for long periods of time, higher than the 20 minutes at a time, with an intensity of 50% to 80% of muscle capacity, and pulsation level below 85%, allowing the burning of fat stored optimally.
Due to the type of activity, cardiovascular exercises burn fat and form muscle in place, although we will not form muscle volume: cardiovascular exercises are to lose weight and tone the body, but not to form volume as a bodybuilder.
