Exercising reduces the risk of heart disease by making the heart muscle stronger
and thicker, allowing it to pump blood with fewer beats. Exercise lowers the
unhealthy cholesterol in your blood, thus reducing the risk of a heart attack.
It also burns calories, allowing it to aid in weight loss as well.
There are two different types of exercise: aerobic and anaerobic.
exercise is defined as being long in duration and low in intensity. You use
the same large muscle group for 15-30 minutes (or longer) and maintain 60%-80%
of your maximum heart rate.
Biking, walking, jogging, cross-country skiing, and swimming are some common aerobic exercises. Aerobic activity increases the efficiency of your heart and lungs by escalating the oxygen intake and enabling the heart to use it more adequately.
to aerobic exercise, anaerobic exercise is short in duration yet high in intensity.
Anaerobic exercise emphasizes building muscle, as opposed to burning oxygen.
Weightlifting, sit-ups, push-ups, sprinting, racquetball, soccer, football,
and downhill skiing are some examples of anaerobic exercise.
It is important to exercise at least three times a week. Usually, the most effective types of exercises are those that combine aspects from both aerobic and anaerobic exercises. If you have medical problems or are over 40, ask a doctor what is right for you.
