The most important muscle is the one that pumps oxygenated blood around our body and keeps us alive, our heart.
Weight training helps strengthen our muscles, but only periods of increased heart rate can help us strengthen the heart.
When our heart has to beat faster during cardiovascular training such as running, cycling or high intensity interval training, the walls of our heart start to develop and thicken as it builds strength. The thicker the muscle wall, the more oxygenated blood the heart can pump around the body in one beat. More oxygenated blood to the muscles with less beats, means increased cardiovascular fitness.
Cardio should be incorporated into all fitness programs and we would recommend doing cardio after weights, not before to increase fat burning potential.
We highly recommend the use of MYZONE heart rate belts so you can monitor your cardivascular output via the screens around the club. Please see reception for more info. Belts are $109.
