Best Exercises For a Healthy Heart

The executive officer of Exercise & Sports Science Australia , Anita Hobson-Powell, believes exercise can play a huge role in the prevention of heart attacks. Regular moderate-intensity exercise has many benefits such as improving heart function. You should be aiming to do 30 to 45 minutes of aerobic or cardio exercises at least three to four times a week. And you only need to train your heart at 50 to 60 percent of your maximum heart rate to be on your way to a stronger healthier heart.

Interval training: Interval training is a great way to strengthen your heart and overall endurance.

Swimming: You might not feel as if you’re breaking a sweat, but swimming is a good form of cardiovascular exercise.

Cycling: Riding a bike, whether it be a road or an exercise bike, is linked to improving cardiovascular health.
