Is Your Heart on Schedule?

Let’s face it our professional jobs or responsibilities at home do not lend any benefits to cardiovascular system. So it is up to us to monitor it. Your heart is a muscle and requires maintenance in the form of physical activity that increases our heart rate way above the resting level. Keep in mind that whatever exercise program or routine you adopt, it should be one that is flexible.

Exercise Your Heart

I have four different exercising routines that I can choose from because my daily schedules change drastically from week to the next.  This will help you maintain some sort of exercise program no matter what surprising changes that may occur in your schedule. There is no excuse for not doing some exercise every day. Let’s talk about my leg routine that doesn’t require me to be in the gym. Let’s say I have no time to go to the gym and I will be stuck in the office for most of the day. I simply fall back into my most simplistic leg workout.

Here’s a Good Heart routine

I can simply do squats in my office, even while talking on the phone with a client. I will do a half squat or simply  use my chair as a guide. Begin in a standing position with your chair behind you,  lower yourself as if you were going to sit down. As soon as your buttocks touches the chair, return to a standing position. You have just completed one repetition of a squat. Now I normally do 20 repetitions per squat set. But if you are just starting, I recommend that you keep your repetitions to a maximum of 10 repetitions per set. Of course in a busy office one cannot take the time out to do several sets, but doing a set here and there throughout the day and you will be surprised of how many sets you can do at work. You will be surprised also that many people in your office will begin mimicking your routine. This is a great way to increase circulation throughout your entire body and maintaining a high level of alertness because you are delivering oxygenated blood to your brain.

A Good Heart is essential for a long life

A good heart can be only maintain by a proper exercise and diet program. So if you want to reap the rewards of a long life you will need to make the necessary adjustments in your lifestyle. If you smoke …quit ..smoking has been liked to cancer and heart disease. Eat a lot of green leafy vegetables and plenty of water.
