Cardio - What To Do? Part 4

Welcome to 5.14 fitness,

Today I will be carrying on a series of posts about Cardio and the different ways to do it.

Almost every sport has cardio implemented, whether it is running in football or swimming in water polo. This cardio is key in order to become a healthier, fitter and thinner person. It is important that Cardio is done ,as without it, a good measure of health can not be achieved. Sport is the perfect way to do Cardio, but there is other ways that can sometimes be more effective ( Jogging for example). The important rule here is: Cardio is key. Aerobically exercising : Getting your heart rate up, sweating and breathing like hell is important for us! Today I will be writing about  team sports. 

There are countless sports that involve you working as part of a team. Whether it is football, rugby or netball, these sports almost always require you to run and  get fitter. This is a great way to do cardio and the choice of sport to do is endless.
First of all, Team sport gives you other people that will cheer you on and make you strive to work and get better. Unlike in individual sports, team sports mean that you have people to rely on. This means there may not be as much pressure, and if you are not particular skilled it is not the end of the world. However, it also means others rely on you, so you have to be ready to step up and not be scared of letting others down. 
Having other people helping you can make you feel so much better, and it also makes the cardio a lot more fun. Running around with friends, striving towards one goal ( to win ) is a great way to make Cardio enjoyable and also more rewarding. There is nothing better than the feeling of success, especially after you have fought hard to earn it with other people. 

Team sports require skill more than other cardio like Running. When jogging, it does not matter whether you are good or bad, just as long as you are getting your heart pumping. Sport however, requires you to be good if you want to succeed. Therefore, you need to think carefully at what your goals are. If you are just aiming to lose weight and want nothing else, then other cardio methods are probably more worth your time. If you are looking to improve and get better at a sport, that is also a major bonus. 

It does not take much to start doing  team sports. The amount of variety to choose from is amazing ; there will certainly be one for you. Just get online and search up what sport you want near where you live, and there will be a whole host of options. You will find places to go to play these sports, and if you are good you can be picked to play in a real team. It is a common misconception that you have to be world-class to play in any team at sports. In fact, it is the opposite. There are hundreds of leagues for hundreds of types of people. Just get up, go to a session, and there will normally be teams that you can be placed in where you will be surrounded by people of a similar ability. Don't be scared to go out there and investigate what you can do. 
If you are interested in hockey, look up hockey near your area and go to a session. If you don't like it, try something else!

Sport makes you run, which is Cardio. There is little point in me going on about how it can help the body, I am sure you already know the benefits! Join a team, have fun, and strive to get better.
