AEROBIC FITNESS

Aerobic fitness is the best way to condition and strenthen the heart and lungs.  A friend, who is a gym instructor, reveals that good aerobic exercises include brisk walking, running, stair climbing, biking, swimming, aerobic dance, or anything else that raises the heart rate and keeps it up for awhile. Heart rate? What is it? Well, i remember during my elementary years when we were made to exercise and feel our pulse rate for 10 seconds. The following is the target heart rate per age:

Age 20      -  20-27

        25       -  20-26

        30        -  19-25

       35         -   19-25

       40         -    18-24

       45          -    18-23

       50         -     17-23

       55         -17-23

       60         -    16-22

      65          -     16-21

      70         -     15-20
