It would be logical to assume that cardio training is primarily an activity aimed at increasing endurance of the heart muscle. However, behind it lies much more effects on the body than you can imagine.
The benefits and harms of cardio
In general, cardio training contributes to:
Increase overall body stamina
Increase lung volume
Lower cholesterol and blood pressure. Continue reading
The basis of this principle is the optimal distribution of loads on the musculoskeletal system (OA) under the influence of gravity. With the optimal position of the ODE, the joints and bones will experience less static-dynamic load, which helps to achieve maximum results in using the physical potential of the body.
Simply put, our body is created brilliantly. It is able to function for many decades with minimal wear, provided that it is used correctly. All our joints are congruent, that is, the shapes of the surfaces coincide. Between them there is a special lubricant. All this allows the joints to not wear out when working. But, very few people adhere to this principle. We see adolescents on the streets with their pants down and their shoulders stooped, and from that moment on, their congruency is already broken and wear begins, at 40 they are already patients of the clinics. Or, as a result of an injury, for a long time you were limping Continue reading
The coordination of breathing with movement is one of the principles of the oldest systems of physical exercises, such as yoga, tai chi, wu-shu, qi-gun. Pilates takes this principle for himself as fundamental, with a slight amendment, that breathing should be rib. Currently, there is a scientific justification for this: the joint work of the abdominal and pelvic diaphragms ensures the correct position of organs, the elasticity of the chest allows you to organize the work of the abdominal muscles correctly. It is immediately necessary to clarify that in life we breathe in a mixed way (stomach, ribs, collarbones) and, depending on the situation, we switch to this or that way of breathing. It is important that this mechanism works instantly. Continue reading
