When you do cardiovascular exercise regularly, it decreases your blood pressure and your resting heart rate. This means your heart doesn’t have to work as hard all of the time. This is good for your entire body. Learn what “regular” cardio exercise is and how it can improve your overall quality of life.
Regular cardiovascular exercise is a 30-minute workout done 5 or more days a week that increases your heart rate. Alternatively, you can try 3, 10-minute workouts for 5+ days a week.
