A heart is the door to a healthier life. The single organ is responsible for pumping blood throughout the body and making you live to the fullest. These days, diseases and problems related to heart have been swelling up around the world. It becomes necessary to take cautious measures and keep a check on your routine to make sure that your heart is stable.
Here are 5 best exercises that will ensure you a healthier and stronger heart:
The human body was born to move a lot; in short, it is nothing without a proper daily walk. The list of benefits that your body receives, due to brisk walking, is endless. If you want to improve your fitness, either hit the treadmill or take the road daily.
In order to take care of your heart properly and to ensure that the blood flow is proper, walk at a fast pace to achieve a moderate intensity level. Even if you want to have a leisurely stroll, have it. Because something is always better than sitting idle.
Running is more challenging than brisk walking and demands more energy. But, it is another of the physical activities that are heart-healthy, and the best way to burn calories. Reducing weight or if you already under safe zone, maintaining it ensures that you will never get serious heart diseases.
The best way to start running is to add 1 or 2 minutes of running every 5 minutes of your brisk walking routine. As you start gathering the stamina to run, increase your time duration. Your heart will definitely live a long and healthy life.
Be it the conventional way of cycling on roads, or using the cycle in the gym, Cycling is a cardiovascular activity that won’t strain your body. The best way to stay fit is to cycle on a proper trail, getting fresh air and toned body at once. If you can’t seem to get a hold of the idea of cycling, just make an efficient use of your bike whenever you are out to run errands.
Cycling increases the heart pumping in an effective manner. It strengthens the core muscles and tones the lower body.
Up for a body fitness challenge? Nothing could be better than swimming laps. Participating in swimming or water fitness classes will improve your heart health and will increase the circulation rate. Other than this, your muscles will be strong and toned due to multi-directional resistance in the water.
In case you have problems related to joints, knees or legs, swimming is a highly suitable alternative to maintain your heart health.
What could be better than the typical cardio exercises to make sure that you have a happy heart? Mix up your cardio with some high-intensity moves or strength training exercises to improve endurance, muscular strength and obviously the heart health. To begin with, you can do one strength training exercise or high-intensity cardio for 1 minute in the midst of your three minutes of daily cardio routine. In case you are easily worked up, it is better to invest in a first-rate massage chair to soothe your aching muscles.
