Isn’t that amazing? But which simple routines come under Aerobic Exercises? Well stay tuned as we are going to tell you just that...
You can stay fit with aerobics anywhere, with little to no equipment. However, to avoid injuries, always make sure to warm up before you start doing any exercise.
Experts recommend doing around 2.5 hours (150 mins) of moderate aerobic workout or 1.25 hours (75 mins) of vigorous workout a week.
Below are some simple aerobic exercises you can indulge in:
Equipment needed: Running shoes
If you are new to jogging or running, don’t rush and start slow with alternate running and walking for one minute at once. Ensure that you don’t forget to warm up and stretch: try for briefer sessions a few times per week initially and then add further as you start getting more robust.
To have a pleasant jogging/running experience, it’s equally important to wear comfortable and high-performance clothes. You must, therefore, check out the incredible athleisure collection by Lavos that’s highly breathable and good at moisture wicking, helping you push in your every workout session with ease.
Equipment needed: A jump rope and pair of sneakers
If you are entirely new to using a jump rope, begin with a pre-decided number of reps or minutes. Go a bit longer every time. Besides the standard cardio benefits, a jumping rope also helps in improving your body awareness, hand and foot coordination, and agility.
Aim at a 15 min jump rope session, 2 to 3 times per week when you are just getting started. More importantly, make sure to have a yoga mat or an exercising mat so that in case you lose balance, you'll have something soft to relax on.
Equipment needed: A pair of good sneakers
Walking is one of the most popular forms of aerobic workout as you can do it anywhere. Include 10-min brisk walks before as well as after work and during lunchtime, or make time for a few longer walks.
You can use a step counter or a fitness tracking app on your smartphone to keep an eye on your steps. Aim for 10,000 steps a day and keep adding more gradually to your daily tally each week.
