Cardiovascular Exercise Program My cardiovascular exercise program consists of very high vigorous activity. This program is called Insanity. These videos consist of one hour of extreme exercise to build cardio and kill fat. The program consists of three to four minute intervals of intense activity at the highest capacity possible. I had to do this six days a week for sixty days. The types of exercise in these videos are plyometrics, running, and resistance training. After the first month it only got harder with the workouts extending to one hour and a half and the rest time depleting from one minute between intervals to thirty seconds. I was extremely surprised by the results I was having I went from a resting heart rate of over eighty-five to where I am now sixty-nine beats per minute. When I started this exercise program my intentions were purely exterior I just wanted to look good but after a few weeks I found myself falling in love with exercise and the way it made me feel. I was not only looking better but I was getting faster and feeling so much healthier. I was able to do things I wasn’t able to before and do the things I could do more efficiently. The health benefits were beginning to out way the reason I began it all. The weirdest part of it was that the more I exercised the more I found myself wanted different types of food which were mainly healthy foods. This exercise program took me from two hundred and eighty five pounds to two hundred and thirty pounds…

The History of Aerobics
Aerobics is a form of physical exercise to get the heart beat pumping and oxygen flowing
the body. The term “aerobics” originated in 1875 when a doctor was describing how certain
bacteria needs oxygen to survive. The idea of aerobic exercise was constructed in the mind of
Dr.Kenneth H. Cooper, who was an air force instructor from San Antonio Texas. Aerobics is a
series of exercises done to prevent coronary artery sickness. From the idea of Dr. Cooper that…
Cardiovascular endurance is the body’s ability to deliver oxygen to muscles while they are working. A good way of training cardiovascular endurance is continuous (long) training.

This involves using the full size of a football pitch; you start from the goal line and run to each line of the football pitch. Firstly you run to the 6 yard box and back then the 18 yard box and back then the half way line and back and you…

Cardiovascular Physiology: How Fit is Your Heart?
Cardiac Output is the volume of blood in mL pumped per minute by each ventricle of the heart. You can find cardiac output by taking the amount of blood pumped from a ventricle in a single heartbeat (also known as stoke volume) times how many times the heart beats per minute (heart rate). With that being said, cardiac output is affected by exercise by making the heartbeat faster and pumping more blood out with every beat. Cardiac output is generally…
