Exercise for your heart

Cardiovascular exercise is great for your heart and lungs.

Often referred to as cardio or aerobic exercise, cardiovascular exercise increases your heartbeat to push more oxygen to your hard-working muscles and your breathing gets harder as your lungs work to take in more air.  

Cardio involves prolonged, repeated movement. Most exercise will have some cardiovascular benefit, and the ones listed below are particularly great cardio activities.
