We all want to reap the benefits of cardiovascular exercise. No matter what modality you prefer, elevating your heart rate is important. It can reduce belly fat, promote brain growth, prevent stress, promote focus, interrupt anxiety, and regulate depression. Often times, we think of cardiovascular training as super-long runs that take up half the day and leave us completely wasted afterwards. While there’s a point and purpose to that kind of steady-state training, it’s not the only way to get a good workout in.
