Aerobic exercise is one of the most vital exercises you can participate in. As men, some of us are so focused on building mass and bulking up that we forget how important aerobics can be. Muscles are great, and strength training is important, but a healthy heart and good circulation is crucial when it comes to great health.
Aerobics doesn’t have to be just running on a treadmill. We can seek out aerobic exercises in various ways to keep it fun and intriguing. Running is a great start, and when applicable, is always great to do outside. Hiking is another great option to increase your heart rate. Some of us don’t like to run, and that’s understandable; for the nature-lover in all of us, hiking is great substitute for aerobics. It’s also a great way to build leg muscle. Swimming is another viable option, and is also a great contributor to muscle growth while simultaneously raising your heart rate. It’s always a great idea to look into joining a gym with a pool. It doesn’t always have to be expensive – sometimes a local YMCA or recreational centers have pools that are conducive towards aerobic swimming.
Dancing, cross-country skiing, even boxing, are all great forms of aerobic exercise. Aerobic exercise not only improves fitness – it also has known benefits for both physical and emotional health. So for all of those body-builders out there, keep building, but try and incorporate some of these aerobic exercises into your weekly routine for an overall quality of health.
