Benefits of Cardio-respiratory Fitness


The heart, lungs, and all other components of their separate systems work together during exercise to provide us with the energy we need to sustain our particular activity.  During the process of exercise your heart pumps blood out to the arteries, which act as transport mediums to deliver the nutrients (namely oxygen) to the working muscles and cells.  Individuals that spend a lot of time doing cardiovascular-type training have more efficient hearts that are capable of delivering greater amounts of nourishment to working tissues with less stress placed on their tickers.  In addition to having a greater amount of working capacity, regular aerobic-type training can help prevent certain diseases and disorders  that can impair an individual’s cardiovascular system.  Take a look at the following list of reported benefits to cardiorespiratory fitness and let it warm your heart to know your physical activities are lengthening your life span.
