Cardiovascular exercise can be done absolutely anywhere without the need for any equipment. All you need is yourself and a bottle of water!
Cardiovascular exercise can be performed by walking, running, cycling, swimming, or actually anything that can elevate the heart rate for a sustained period of time. Unless injury or medical conditions apply, there should’nt be any reason why any of us can’t do some type of exercise.
To help improve fitness try performing cardiovascular exercise for 30 mins 5 times a week. Aim to elevate the heart rate during this period and as the effort becomes easier over the weeks try to increase the intensity of the session. For example, begin by a comfortable walk for the first few sessions then start to increase to a brisk walk, then maybe try some interval based jogging where you can walk for 2 mins and jog for 1 minute repeated 10 times.
Now you know how easy it is, get outside and get the heart and lungs working!
