Reference Guide to Aerobic Exercise
An In-Depth Look

I was kind of surprised that there was no mention of stretching following cardio. I find it absolutely vital to ensure I'm not sore after a jog on the treadmill. And, stretching generally makes me feel good. It's easier to do when my muscles are still warm from my aerobic workout.

For cardio I go to swimming, and exercise for 1 hour at moderate pace and when I don't have the time to swim, I exercise on my mini trampoline for 30 minutes. This is also a way to introduce variety to my program
I always confuse when they said "this session is 20 minutes, you need to warm up 5 minutes, cool down 5 minutes". So, does that mean the 20 minutes is including the warm up and cool down? Or 20 minutes is the training itself, so that means total length is 30 minutes with the warm and cool part? Anyhow, this article is a good reference.
