Heart Health Exercise: Makes A Huge Difference In The Long Run!

A healthy heart is what each person desires. Achieving a healthy and fit heart requires an active lifestyle. An active routine ensures a stronger and healthier heart. Individuals who refrain from exercises are more prone to suffer from cardiovascular diseases.  Rather than sitting, any slight movement is also beneficial for good heart health.

One doesn’t have to be a pro in fitness or an athlete but should start simple exercises and as the old adage goes “Little drops of water makes the mighty ocean” Simple exercise includes even a curt walk for half an hour a day. Gyms or hard dumbbell training is not required yet simple activity like jogging can make a huge difference. The exercise procedure can be taken step by step with initially walking and then jogging or further running.

Recommended exercises

  • Exercise for enhancing respiratory efficiency: These are basically aerobic exercise which includes running, cycling etc. The motive is to increase the rapidity of heartbeat. One should not overdo it and if you are suffering from any other ailments, perform lighter workouts like walking.
  • Increase flexibility: Stretching after exercising can enhance the flexibility of your body. Though stretching is good for the body, anything you push harder is harmful.
  • Weight workouts: Working out with weights on alternate days can improve your strength. Strength training can be achieved by performing yoga, TRX exercise etc.

Tips for safe exercising

  • To develop general heart health, two and a half hours of adequate workout and one and a half hours of intense exercise per week are required.
  • Start with low impact training and steadily intensify your workout so that your body familiarizes to the modifications.
  • While exercising, maintain low speed at the beginning and even when you finish.
  • Instantly ask for help if you experience pain in the chest or difficulty in breathing or sense giddiness etc.
  • Consult a doctor to know if you could do certain exercises or to be aware of the actual amount of activity essential for your body.
  • If you do not follow the correct technique of performing the exercise, you might end up getting injured. So ensure that you do it appropriately.

Always remember ‘health is wealth’ and to maintain this wealth you need to exercise daily and keep yourself fit to fight the battles of your body in the most adequate manner!
