Step Aerobics: If you want a safer way to exercise for getting your heart rate up try the following STEP aerobics exercise video. It’s fun, while benefiting from one of the best aerobic routines possible.
Compare it to other aerobic exercises like running, you’ll notice that the STEP aerobics exercise allows you to better control the impact to your feet when touching down. Without the pain to the ankles or knees, should you suffer from a medical condition or are just starting off to strengthen the muscles surrounding these joints, it’s more likely that you will keep doing the exercise and enjoy the benefits of an aerobic workout.
But why should you exercise to a breath robbing point of exhaustion to get that heart pumping?
When doing step aerobics or any kind of aerobics you are primarily working your heart muscle, as it works like a pump, recycling the used blood back to the lungs (pulmonary system) from where it is returned again, fresh blood now, transporting oxygen and nutrients into the cells of the body. This pumping action helps strengthen the heart muscle which lessens its work load to keep your body running. You can check this by taking your pulse. The lower the number of beats measured per minute, the fitter you possibly are. The better you can climb the stairs later…grocery bags and all…
Calculate your pulse rate
Overall, a strong beating heart supports your demand for physical and mental activities. But exercising is not just an after effect. Your body benefits right away. When you do step aerobics exercises, such as in dancing, your heart contracts in short succession. Fast flowing blood loosens debris from the arteries and thus prevents blockage. Your brain profits by getting a burst of fresh oxygen pushed to it faster.
Now, give steps aerobics a try. You can start stepping right now in your home, or on the train in the rain without pain as Dr. Seuss might say, the author of “Green Eggs And Ham”…
