Moderate aerobic activity will increase your heart rate it will make you breathe faster and also you will feel warm. One of the ways in which you can identify whether your workout is a moderate-intensity workout is by still being able to talk, but you may not be able to sing, as singing requires a lot of energy and oxygen flow. Some of the instances of moderate-intensity workouts are brisk walking, water aerobics, riding a cycle or bike, dancing, double tennis, pushing a lawn mower, rollerblading, hiking, and so on.
In vigorous exercise, you will breathe hard and quickly. If you are working out at this level, then you may be able to speak only a few words and also not pause for breath. You should aim to do 75 minutes of vigorous exercise, but if you are a novice, it is suggested that you begin with 30 minutes and then slowly increase the level of your exercise. All of a sudden, doing such rigorous exercise can result in pressure on the heart. Also, neither should you fill your stomach and do rigorous exercise, nor should you do such exercise on an empty stomach. Taking a fruit juice like an apple juice or pomegranate juice or mango juice can help, but don’t drink too much that your stomach feels full, or else chances are there that you will vomit in the process of exercise.
