Low intensity cardio training occurs when you workout at about 50–65 percent of your maximum heart rate for a steady and sustained period.

Typically, a low-intensity cardio workout lasts 10 to 50 minutes.

Low-intensity cardio training has a relatively little effect while providing all the cardiovascular benefits of exercise without over-taxing your body.

Low intensity cardio training can be used for warming and cooling before resistance training sessions. In addition, this style of training is well suited for fasting cardio. It can also help in active recovery as it helps improve blood flow and circulation in your working muscles.

Works for low-intensity cardio training:

  • Improve blood circulation and increase blood flow
  • Build cardiovascular endurance
  • Build muscle endurance
  • Less fatigue
  • Reduce fat
  • Put less stress on your joints, ligaments, tendons and therefore reduce the risk of injury
