Cardiovascular exercises and weight

Cardiovascular exercises and weight

There is a close relationship between endurance and conduct in our performance while we execute weight and cardiovascular exercises. When our cardiovascular system is functioning properly, prudently taking advantage of oxygen and transporting it from our lungs through the blood to our brain and muscle cells, our capacity and endurance improve, both in anaerobic exercises and weights, just as the muscle strength increases by developing larger and stronger muscle fibers during the resting stage. Therefore, this combination, in addition to proper breathing and a balanced diet, will bring changes to our body and organism that can leave us surprised.

Cardiovascular before or after weights

This question has always been the order of the day in gyms because there have always been opinions that differ from one another, but let's talk logically. The stored glycogen to be used as energy in weight training will be limited if we perform cardiovascular before, therefore, the response of the muscle to the stimulus in addition to our performance, will be lower. However, if we achieve a muscle response as a result of our performance by doing cardio exercises after weight training, our body will be using fat as fuel since the body depleted the stored glycogen.

Cardiovascular and weights in thin people

There is a lot of confusion about the idea that a person with a thin build cannot perform regular cardiovascular exercises. As we mentioned earlier, when there is a performance in the execution of weight exercises, due to the proper functioning of the cardiovascular system, there is a greater response of the muscle and a greater breakdown of its fibers. The system will rebuild them, and the muscles will now be larger, stronger and more resistant, therefore there will be greater metabolic stress or hormonal responses stimulating weight gain and muscle. It is important to point out that there are cases of thin build people, who maintain a level of fat equal or higher than a person with overweight, being necessary to include cardiovascular exercises in their training.

Cardiovascular, weights and medical conditions.

Medical evaluations represent a priority before starting any type of physical activity that involves effort and what results from combinations such as cardiovascular exercises and weights or bodybuilding exercises, outside of the advantages they provide. There are medical conditions such as hypotension and hypertension, in addition to people who normally handle low blood sugar levels, where weight training combined with cardiovascular exercises can create a negative response in the body.
