The best exercises are something you enjoy so you will stick to it to get the full benefits. You may be surprised at how quickly this form of physical activity becomes a habit that you will really enjoy. Exercise and cardiovascular fitness exercises are great for your health but the best cardio exercises get you to your ideal target heart rate as you exercise. To test your heart rate while you exercise, place your thumb on the underside of your wrist to locate your pulse. Count the heart beats for fifteen seconds and multiply that number times four. That number is your heart rate. To calculate your ideal target heart rate, subtract your age from two hundred and twenty. Everyone has their own preference of exercise, but these exercises below will get you to your ideal target heart rate and are some of the best cardio exercises. Walking As an exercise. Bicycling exercise. Swimming pool workout. Jogging. The length of any fitness exercise should be a minimum of twenty minutes and up to an hour. Test your heart rate while you exercise and calculate your ideal target heart rate. To get to your target heart rate just adjust your speed or resistance. That way you get the highest possible benefit and the best cardio exercise possible. A stronger cardio-vascular system means that more capillaries are delivering more oxygen to cells in your muscles. This allows your cells to burn more fat during both exercise and inactivity. Cardio exercises will burn fat. Weight loss comes from burning more calories than you take in. Even when you see no specific weight loss you are getting great benefits from a cardio workout. Benefits: Weight Loss, Increased Bone Density, Reduces Stress, Better Sleep, More Energy, Strengthens Heart & Lungs,Reduction in Mood Swings and Depression and Increases Energy Levels for a More Active Lifestyle. Happy jogging.

A lot of fitness trainers I have worked with in the gym (when I used to work out) said the best exercise is doing cardio activity. Of course, aero activity also keeps it balanced but cardio makes you sweat (which is good) and and make your heart circulate better. Jogging or brisk walking is a good source of cardio activity.
