Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States. Take steps today to lower your risk of heart disease.
To help prevent heart disease, you can:
⦁ Eat healthy.
⦁ Get active by doing not only cardio but resistance training.
⦁ Stay at a healthy weight.
⦁ Quit smoking and stay away from secondhand smoke.
⦁ Control your cholesterol and blood pressure.
⦁ Drink alcohol only in moderation.
⦁ Manage stress.
The American Heart Association recommends strength training at least twice per week.
Strengthening your muscles gives you the ability to perform everyday activities and helps protect your body from injury. Stronger muscles also lead to a boost in your metabolic rate, which means you’ll burn more calories even when your body is at rest.
Don’t worry — we’re not talking about professional bodybuilding. Simple, weight- bearing exercises that use free weights, machines or your body’s own resistance are the focus. You can do these workouts separate from your cardio activity or add resistance on to an existing workout. Choose the time and type of activity that works for you.
A well-rounded strength-training program provides the following benefits:
⦁ Increased strength of bones, muscles and connective tissues (tendons and ligaments);
⦁ Lower risk of injury;
⦁ Increased muscle mass, which makes it easier for your body to burn calories and thus maintain a healthy weight;
⦁ Better quality of life.
