Cardiovascular Training by Live Fit for Women

Cardio training is any exercise that elevates your heart rate to a range between 60 to 85 percent of your maximum rate (fastest your heart could possibly beat). When you're in this heart rate range, you're training in an "cardiovascular" or "aerobic" state. Cardio training has numerous health benefits. In addition to burning calories and losing body fat, it strengthens your heart and lungs. Since heart disease is the leading cause of premature death for both men and women, cardiovascular fitness is a extremely important!

Most experts agree that cardiovascular training should last for 20 to 60 minutes, with the normal range being 30 to 40 minutes per session. Cardio should be performed a minimum of three days per week, with four to five days being optimal. Good examples of cardiovascular exercises are included below:

  • Aerobics
  • Elliptical Trainers
  • Running
  • Sprinting
  • Stationary Bike
  • Walking
  • The amount of calories you burn during your cardio session depends on your current body weight and the type of cardio exercise your doing. You can use our "Calories Burned" page below to find out how many calories your favorite cardio exercise will burn during a one hour cardio session.
