Today’s sedentary man who is over the age of 30 starts to think about fitness for his survival. He sees his older friends in their 40s and 50s dying of heart attacks. Scientists predict that people who maintain a moderately high level of physical activity can decrease the risk of coronary heart disease by about 33 percent. Exercising also helps in terminating such other states like obesity and high blood pressure, which are causes of heart disease.
To accomplish the highest cardiovascular improvements from aerobic exercises, exercise trainers advise elevating the heartbeat to about 70% of the person's maximum heart rate. Once that elevated rate is reached while exercising, continue exercising to keep that rate for at least 30 minutes. This exercise should be repeated three times a week.
To count the maximum heart rate, you should subtract your age from 220. Then, multiply the difference by 70 percent. The 70 percent is an average. The range is really anywhere from 60 to 80 percent. Older individuals, or those people just beginning an exercising technique will shoot for the 60 percent mark, while more energetic people will work harder to reach the 80 percent level.
A person easy-going
for years does not gain from a crash attempt to make up for lost time or
physical conditioning by a rigorous regiment. In doing this it can
do your body more harm than good. Exercising can be unhealthy in
various situations, specifically if people overexert themselves or do not
carry out the exercises properly.
