Exercise Essential For A Healthy Heart

Very few of our jobs today require vigorous exercise. We ride elevators, drive to work, use computers, and sit at home watching TV. Many of the activities we participate in require very little exercise. However, most of us are becoming more and more aware of how important exercise is to our cardiovascular system. A well designed and convenient program of exercise can help maintain a healthy heart and bring more energy into daily activities. Brisk and sustained exercise, especially interval type training contributes most to a healthy heart. It improves the efficiency of the heart and the amount of oxygen that the body can utilize in a given amount of time. To improve the efficiency of your heart and lungs, as well as to burn off extra calories, exercise must be brisk enough to raise the heart and breathing rate, sustained (performed at least 20 to 30 minutes without interruption), and regular (usually at least 3 or more times a week). Walking is an easy way to begin an exercise program because it does not require special facilities or equipment other than good, supportive shoes and a safe place to walk.
