Cardio exercise keeps you healthy in many ways. Cardio, short for cardiovascular means performing activities that elevate your heart rate thereby, strengthening the cardiovascular system. In other words it keeps your heart strong. One of the important aspects of working out is keeping your body healthy and your heart strong, the rest will come naturally such as losing weight and looking AWESOME! To get all of these results I suggest doing cardio workout 2 to 3 times a week 45 minutes to an 1 hour each time; the more times a week the better.
Improving your mood and releasing your stress, who doesn’t want that? This part of cardio kickboxing is my favorite part, while getting to burn calories and strengthen my heart I get to punch out stress on the bags! Sounds pretty good right; just like in any other workout this also improves your mood in all aspects of your life. You think about the everyday stresses in life and being able to forget about it all for 45 minutes to 1 hour thinking about nothing but how hard you’re working to get results that you want.
High intensity cardio workout such as kickboxing is a great way to get in better shape. You think about doing that 2 to 3 times a week for 45 minutes; you’re going to be burning a lot of calories which helps melt the fat!! Also, the cardio workouts it will make you hungrier since you’re burning so many calories. Just remember to make good decisions on what you decide to snack on such as fruit, veggies, and anything fresh! I suggest bananas after your workout because potassium plays a big role in muscle function and you sweat potassium out of your body while working out.
