The Ageless P.E. longevity education series continued with a discussion on the benefits of cardiopulmonary exercise for long-tern health.
People Unlimited directors James Strole and Bernadeane hosted a welcome conversation on cardio training for long-term health on Monday October 17th 2016, presented by Dimitri Larno, personal trainer and flexibility and strength coach.
Dimitri’s presentation was on training the cardiopulmonary system and how to stimulate this system correctly to benefit a person planning on sticking around. He clearly defined the cardiopulmonary system as including both the respiratory/pulmonary system, that draws oxygen into the body and removes the carbon dioxide, as well as the cardiovascular system, the heart and blood vessels, which are the delivery system of the oxygen to the cells.
Moving muscles creates a demand for oxygen, so using our muscular system is the way we stimulate our cardio-pulmonary system, thereby strengthening and improving the efficiency of the heart, lungs and blood vessel. This in turn provides many positive side-effects for the body overall, such as stress relief, increased bone density, more energy etc.
Dimitri went on to discuss that although any exercise that elevates the heart rate can be healthy, you must differentiate between putting miles on your body and stimulating your system. Many people get confused over what kind of cardio training to do, low or high intensity, short or long distance, even effort or intervals. There are benefits and challenges involved with each one. This is a choice for every person to make for their own unlimited bodies.
The subject of how best to work out always stimulates a high energy Q&A discussion and this topic was no exception. People Unlimited is an educational, lifestyle and social organization for people interested in radical life extension and physical immortality.
