Get it All Done at Hilliard Studio Method (Cardio Included)
Why is cardio important?
Cardiovascular exercise is exercise that raises your heart rate. Your heart is a muscle and working it makes it stronger. Cardiovascular health has countless benefits for the body. For example, a strong cardiovascular system means more oxygen is delivered to the cells in your muscles and you are able to burn more calories during exercise and even rest!
Liz recently had her Vo2 max measured by Sarah Edwards, MD. Vo2 max is how much oxygen a person can take in and is widely used as a gauge of cardiovascular and overall health. Those with low Vo2 max have increased mortality rates, higher rates of some cancers and increased risk of heart attacks and strokes. Here’s what Dr. Edwards said about Liz’s Vo2 max: “I find it interesting that Liz Hilliard does not run but has been able to increase and maintain her Vo2 max by doing her Method. I think it is a testimony to the high intensity of her Method. She is decreasing her all cause mortality by exercising correctly and effectively.”
So how do I improve my cardiovascular health?
Traditionally, doing your cardio has meant running, cycling or attending a HIIT workout — which, let’s face it, isn’t always fun. But this doesn’t have to be the case!
