Vaping and Cardio
The best advice for all of you who want to be professional athletes, or to those who just want to be fit, would be not to give in yourselves to any of the bad habits and lead a healthy life.
Even though there are many claims that vaping is less harmful to your health than smoking tobacco cigarettes, none of them are scientifically proven. However, a question arises in connection with this topic. Does vaping have any impact on your cardio performance?
Regarding actual smoking, it has been scientifically proven that nicotine causes constriction of arteries and speeds up heart rate (which means that it has to work harder as blood vessels do not work effectively), and thus limits your cardiovascular fitness. We could not help but wonder, is it the same in the case of using electronic cigarettes?
Benefits of vaping
Vaping is a relatively new phenomenon and because of that possible side effects are still a topic for scientific research.
While giving up a bad habit like smoking would be the best option not only if you want to boost your energy, but if you want to take better care of your health as well, vaping gadgets at least let you control the level of nicotine and in this way they make your transition smooth. But, if you are addicted to the tobacco flavor that much, you can even buy tobacco flavored e-juices for your device.

And if this was not enough for you, let us take a closer look at what happens with your body during this transition. Your lungs will begin to repair themselves as you stop taking in nicotine, and the tar that has been accumulated for such a long time from inhaling tobacco smoke will be removed from your body. You will start feeling better after just a few weeks, you will be able to breathe more deeply and improve your endurance performance. Moreover, you will get rid of anxiety, irritability and depression.
Impact of vaping on cardio
There are various reports on the amount of impact that vaping has on the performance of athletes, such as that their ability to run for distance improved after vaping just for a week. When it comes to strength trainings, a couple of reports found out that athletes were able to perform more heavy lifts than they could before starting to vape. However, it is said that vaping heavily within an hour or two before a workout shortens the breath, but, it is still deeper when compared to the performance after using tobacco cigarettes.
To conclude, vaping is quite new and no scientific studies have been conducted yet. But, we do know one thing for sure: vaping is definitely a safer choice than smoking.
