Q: Can Oxycise be my only form of exercise? Don’t I need to do cardio exercise to be healthy?
A: Your heart is a muscle just like any other and in order for it to become strong it must be worked. Getting your heart beating faster than it’s resting rate each day trains your body to move oxygen and blood to your muscles more efficiently, to keep you healthy and in shape. It increases your metabolic rate, allowing your cells to burn more fat during both exercise and inactivity.
I think we can all agree that cardiovascular exercise is important. The exciting news is that Oxycise IS a cardiovascular exercise. By simply providing your body with lots of extra oxygen in the first place, you can get a complete aerobic workout without the pounding, gasping and sweating of traditional aerobic exercise.
Cardio exercise is any exercise that raises your heart rate. Put it to the test yourself. Get your heart rate monitor ready, then start your Oxycise with lots of gusto – the way you should always be doing it. Now watch how quickly your heart rate increases in just one or two minutes!
Using a heart rate monitor during your workout is also a good reminder to help you keep up the intensity of your workouts and get the most out of every breath. Do your heart good.
