Cycling or Running: Which One Is Better for You?
Your heart health
Running and cycling are both exercises that improve your cardiovascular health. As aerobic sports, these activities strengthen the heart muscle, so it pumps more blood, therefore sending oxygen more quickly through your body – and not just during workouts, but in every other moment as well.
No matter how healthy it may be, too much cardio might actually do more bad than good. Recent studies proved that if you exercise more than 5 times a week and 60 minutes a day, your cardiovascular health may be impacted negatively! So, as with anything else, moderation is key here as well.
