CARDIO, short for cardiovascular exercise, is any movement that gets your heart rate up and increases blood circulation. For some it’s a dreaded word and for others it’s a passion they can’t get enough of. Either way you look at it though, cardiovascular exercise is one of the key components that should never be left out of a fitness plan.
Most individuals performing cardio are using it as a way to burn off excess calories and since you are moving the body, it is going to increase the need for energy. Some forms are slightly better when strictly speaking of fat loss but all cardio, regardless of form will burn off calories. Since fat loss does depend on calories burned versus calories consumed it is a step in the right direction.
