Use Fitness To Fight Heart Disease

posted in: Fitness, Wellness | 0

Physical activity raises the level of fitness and is important in the fight against heart disease.

The intensity and duration should be discussed with one’s physician if there is reason to be cautious, but what we know is that even a half hour walk at the pace of 3 to 4 miles per hour is considered a modest activity. After that, it doesn’t take much to get the heart pumping more oxygen and benefiting from a workout! Read more exercise ideas from John Hopkins Medicine here.

In fact, combining aerobic (walking, swimming, running, playing tennis), resistance (weight lifting, squats, push-ups) and stretching (basic stretches and yoga) activities is believed to deliver the best results with regards to a healthy heart.
