Examples of Cardio and Endurance Exercises
Aerobics or endurance and endurance exercises include exercises that make your heart beat faster and increase your rate of breathing. If you don’t have the time to do a full workout, something as easy as going up and down a flight of stairs for a few minutes can already count as physical activity.
Some examples of exercises include:
To brisk walk, you must be able to do 100 steps per minute. This can be an ideal exercise for those who want to slowly make their way to more intense workouts. To increase the difficulty, try walking with a weighted vest or small dumbbells.
Jogging or Running
Once your body is used to brisk walking, you can start jogging or running. If you’re just starting out, you can alternate between walking and jogging every few minutes. Try to slowly increase how long you jog every session.
This exercise involves jumping and then raising your arms over your head. Put your arms back down once you reach the ground and repeat.
Think of this as a modified substitute for running. When doing high knees, lift one leg as high as it can go towards your chest. Do this with the other leg and repeat alternately.
Raise one leg up and bend your knees just enough so that the heel touches your buttocks. Alternate this movement with both legs.
This can be done by a sidewalk or one step. Place one foot on top of the elevated surface, then quickly switch to the other foot. Repeat, and try to maintain your pace.
