Cardiovascular exercises such as walking, running, biking and swimming increase the heart rate, strengthens cardiac muscle and allows the body to use stored body fat as a fuel source for purposes of losing weight.
Resistance exercise helps to increase strength, improve sports performance, increase neuromuscular communication and elevate the body’s basal metabolic rate. Research has also shown that regular resistance exercise will help to increase and maintain bone density.
