Reduce Your Heart Attack Risk – Get Moving!
Did you know that just 40 minutes of brisk walking 3 times a week helps reduce heart attack risk?
According to the American Heart Association, people shouldn’t sweat indulging in the occasional dessert. However, people should sweat at least three times a week for about 40 minutes. Moderate cardio, such as brisk walking, is a great combatant to high cholesterol and blood pressure.
If you’re amongst the one-third of Americans who have elevated cholesterol but aren’t physically able to take on more intense exercise, frequent trips around the neighborhood may be just what you need to cut your risk of heart attack.
So get moving with an activity that benefits both your heart and mind.
