0:48 Better Cardiovascular Health! Every time you hop on that bike and start moving your legs, your heart starts working too. The first advantage of a stronger heart – or the first one you’ll notice – is that your
1:34 Improved Brain Health Your brain gets a kick out of cardio workouts that make your heart and lungs stronger. That’s because that extra kick of oxygen and blood flow goes straight to your brain. As such, your command center can do its job better.
2:07 Better Breathing! Many people believe that stationary bikes increase lung
3:54 Fat Loss! Losing weight is one thing; losing fat is another. Many people who’re doing mindless cardio shed a lot of water weight when they first start exercising. Afterward, they experience a plateau and get demoralized entirely, so they quit exercise altogether.

7:51 Reduced Risk Of Diabetes Whether you’ve been diagnosed with pre-diabetes, diabetes, or a high risk of developing this condition, know that any endurance-based sport can help you. When you’re doing this type of exercise, your muscles use more of the glucose that would otherwise spike in your blood.
