What are some examples of cardiovascular exercises?

Rose Reisman
Nutrition & Dietetics
Cardiovascular exercise strengthens your heart, increases your lung capacity and creates endurance. Here are several heart and lung strengthening exercises:
  • Running
  • Brisk walking
  • Swimming
  • Biking
  • Working out on cardio equipment
  • Aerobic classes or DVDs
When the exercise becomes too easy, which usually means that you can have a full-blown conversation, then it's time to bump up the intensity. You have to up the ante if you want continued results.
