The Benefits Of Aerobic Exercise And How Easy It Can Be

Aug 17, 2007
There are so many benefits to doing aerobic exercise and it is a lot easier to do than you may first think. I mean lets face it the majority of us have legs and can walk. There! That says it all. Walking is one of the best aerobic exercises of all. We all know how to do it and we use it everyday without even thinking about it. But isn't it funny that we do it everyday but as soon as someone says we can do it as exercise we shrink back and say - that's too hard.

It is the easiest form of exercising in the world. But to make it have any real aerobic benefit we need to pick up the pace and do it for at least 30 minutes at a time and at least 3 times a week. Depending on what you want to get out of it will be the decider on how often and how long you do it for. There are many reasons why people want or need to do aerobic exercise and the biggest reason for many is losing weight. Obviously you should be looking further than just losing weight as we all should be thinking about our hearts and lungs as well.

Of course walking is not the only form of aerobic exercise that will give you these same benefits. You can ride a bicycle including an stationary bike, do aerobics in a class session or on your own with a video or dvd, swimming, running, skipping or in fact anything that gets the heart pumping and the lungs working. Really, it is up to the individual to decide what suits them the best.

The good thing about walking though, is it costs you nothing apart from a good pair of walking shoes and if you want to do this seriously then you should invest in a pair that has been made for this reason. You don't have to spend mega dollars on this as there are shoes for this purpose that are reasonably priced. If you want to join an aerobics class then you will also need clothes that suit. Once again you do not need to spend a lot of money. Often just wearing lose comfortable clothes will be good enough. But if you have the money and are fashion conscious then you can go all out as there are lots to choose from.

The important thing to remember though is if you have not exercised for a long time or you are heavily over weight and or you are over 40 then you should see your GP first to have a health check. You also need to remember to start out slow and build up. You will be amazed with how quickly you will improve which will then allow you to do much more. Before you know it you will be much more healthier and you will have lost those extra pounds to boot!
