Why you should limit your cardio duration?


Although this blog doesn’t focus on cardiovascular fitness articles, we’ll take a look on how a fitness regime affects your heart in this article. Many people entering the fitness world make the mistake of wanting to do too much exercise at once.

Health experts don’t help when they declare that we all need a full hour of exercise to reap better heart benefits. The experts don’t lie when they say that an hour of exercise daily can do wonders for your cardiovascular system, but in the real world it’s hard to even think about getting thirty minuets of exercise per day. The good news is that while an hour can provide optimum cardiac benefits, just 20 minutes of activity can significantly impact sedentary people.

20 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise per day can improve a person’s cardiac profile dramatically. You can reduce your risk of atherosclerosis, high blood pressure and improve blood lipid profile by raising your good cholesterol and lowering your bad cholesterol. It’s been shown in various studies that just exercising 2.5 hours a week can reduce your cardiovascular risk by 30%-50%.

So if you decide to embark upon a fitness journey don’t bring yourself down because you can’t perform an hour of exercise a day. Remember that with just 20 minutes you’re way ahead of the gang. Either if you're jogging or using an exercise bike, it's a smart move not to over-train.
