Brisk Walking vs Vigorous Exercise ... Equal in Preventing Heart Disease!
Exercise has been shown in a number of studies to provide some protection against heart disease and stroke. Regular exercise such as swimming, cycling and many other aerobic fitness methods can have benefits beyond the cardiovascular system. Routine exercise strengthens and tones muscles, increases the flexibility of joints, and clearly reduces bone thinning (osteoporosis). This enhanced fitness reduces the risk of falling and breaking bones. Regular exercise can also promote socialization and a general sense of well being.
