Aerobic exercises: exercise video

In this video, we show you some aerobic exercises to work your heart and lungs. 

Julie and Mick demonstrate aerobic exercises to work your heart and lungs.

Aerobic exercise gets your heart and lungs working, so you feel somewhat out of breath, a bit warm and sweaty. As you get fitter, the more you will be able to do before getting too breathless. Lots of everyday activities are actually aerobic exercise, like walking briskly, dancing, housework and gardening

This film lasts 7 minutes and 22 seconds, with 5 minutes of aerobic exercise. You may want to do this just once, or watch it more times to build up the length of time you exercise.

Or, cool down and stretch
