Cardiorespiratory Endurance


What is Cardiorespiratory Endurance?

Ever found yourself huffing and puffing after walking up a bunch of stairs? That’s because your heart is not used to that much work. If you haven’t being doing cardio exercises at the right intensity or if you are just getting back from an injury or illness, you’ll have to Retrain your heart to pump the right amount of oxygen-rich blood throughout your body.

Cardiorespiratory Training improves your endurance to keep you from feeling excessive fatigue. It also prevents chronic disease, improves health, and overall quality of life. When thinking of cardio training running will most likely come to mind. But there are so many other things that you could do such as biking, hiking, kayaking… and the list goes on. The important thing is that it’s something you enjoy doing, done at the right intensity.

Train at the Right Intensity

Exercising at the right intensity is important for properly rebuilding your foundation. You can’t expect to get to the 4th floor if you skip floors 2 and 3 so don’t expect your heart to be able to either. Start off at the right intensity even if it means you can’t do the activities you wish to – yet. Doing too much at once could result in injury or overtraining. We don’t want that. You need to earn your right. Allow your body to progress.
