Cardiovascular exercises, better known as cardio, are those exercises that improve our resistance and increase our heart rate and breathing. The idea is to make an effort until we almost lose our breath. In fact, a good cardio session is successful when, in full action, we cannot pronounce more than 5 or 6 words. If we can talk normally, we are not working hard enough.
Cardio increases our cardio-respiratory rhythm, so we burn more calories quickly while improving our metabolism and strengthening our heart and lungs. To make matters worse, it also decreases the level of stress hormones, and thanks to that we release endorphins, it helps us to feel happier.
