Cardio, CV (Cardiovascular training) and aerobic exercise are all common ways of referring to cardio training and focus on consistent movement that makes your heart and lungs work harder than they do at rest.
By using large muscle groups for a sustained period of time you will challenge your cardiorespiratory system which has many benefits including regulating weight, lower blood pressure, strengthen heart and lungs, improve sleep, boosts mood and strengthens immune system.

Resistance & strength training
Often referred to as weight training, resistance training comes in many different forms. Ultimately, it’s any exercise whereby you push, pull or lift against a form of resistance. The resistance can be provided by many means such as bands, dumbbells, weighted barbells, kettlebells or any other external form of resistance.
The benefits of resistance training are endless and where possible should always be included in an exercise program. You’ll decrease the risk of heart disease, decrease blood pressure, lower body fat, increase bone density and is the most effective way of shaping your body.

Free weights are a form of resistance training that doesn’t limit the range of motion you can use when performing exercises, think dumbbells, barbells, plates, and bands.
