Boost your aerobic fitness using weights!
Boost your Aerobic Fitness using Weights! You don’t need to do traditional cardio training (run / cycle / swim) to boost your aerobic fitness. This can be achieved using weights in a HIIT (high-intensity interval training) formation using resistance equipment such as kettlebells, power bags, body weight, free weights, weights machines, suspension training etc. And these will give you all the benefits or ‘traditional cardio’ PLUS the many benefits of weight training. AND with shorter workout duration
Your peak aerobic capacity is measured by VO2 max.
And one of the smartest ways to raise that VO2 max is through high-intensity interval training. With HIIT, you make your heart beat hard, then back off and let it recover, then go hard again, reaching intensities that the start-low-and-go-slow approach could never match.
The maximum amount of oxygen your body can use during exercise—your peak aerobic capacity, or VO2 max—is the single best predictor of cardiac-related deaths (and deaths of all causes).
