What is Aerobic Exercise?
The American College of Sports Medicine
(ACSM) defines aerobic exercise as "any activity that uses large
muscle groups, can be maintained continuously, and is rhythmic in nature."
It is a type of exercise that overloads the heart and lungs and causes
them to work harder than at rest. The important idea behind aerobic exercise
today, is to get up and get moving!! There are more activities than ever
to choose from, whether it is a new activity or an old one. Find something
you enjoy doing that keeps your heart rate elevated for a continuous time
period and get moving to a healthier life.
