Elements of a Cardio Workout
There are four phases of an aerobic workout:
Phase 1: Warm-up (5-10 minutes): The goal is to get the heart 
rate up to about 50 to 60% of the target rate.
Phase 2: Stretching (5-10 minutes): Stretching the muscles helps 
avoid injury and prepares them for more rigorous activity.
Phase 3: Activity (30-40 minutes): This is the main exercise. 
Times will vary depending on fitness level.
Phase 4: Cooldown (5-10 minutes): The period during
which the heart rate gradually resumes its normal level.
