Walking, Cycling & Jogging
Whether you're into walking, cycling or jogging we're here to
keep you informed on the latest tips, trends and more.
Walking, cycling, jogging or exercise can help your heart. Whether
the activity is included in a structured exercise program or
just part of your daily routine, all physical exercise leads
to a healthier heart.
Inactivity has been shown to increase the chance of developing
coronary artery disease. Lack of physical activity also increases
other health risks such as high blood pressure, low level of
good (HDL) cholesterol and obesity. Aerobic exercises or activities
that use your large muscles help your heart by making it beat
faster and work more efficiently. Modest exercise, a brisk walk,
bicycle ride, or jogging, can help the body.
Abstract: Walking is considered one of the best forms
of exercise because it's easy, safe and cheap. Brisk walking
can burn as many calories as running, but is less likely than
running or jogging to cause injuries. And it doesn't require
any training or special equipment, except for good shoes. Walking
is an aerobic and weight-bearing exercise, so it is good for
your heart and helps prevent osteoporosis.
Get on a
Bike to Get Around
Abstract: Cycling, whether for fun, sport or as transport
is a healthy way to get around. Improving one's health, getting
some fresh air and exercise, managing their
weight are some
of the reasons that motivate people to go cycling. Regular cycling
improves fitness significantly; reducing obesity, the risk of
strokes, coronary heart disease (CHD), certain types of cancer,
diabetes and osteoporosis. There are also benefits for mental
health, with evidence of reduced depression and stress, improved
self- esteem and confidence in performing physical tasks.
Abstract: Jogging is a great way to exercise and keep
fit. But jogging is not without risks. A little knowledge and
preparation can go a long way to prevent injuries and accidents.
Before you start, consult your physician. Your physician may
suggest a stress test to evaluate your condition and can offer
helpful advice specific to your physical condition.
to a Healthy Heart
Abstract: Talk to your doctor about how much exercise
is right for you. A good goal for many people is to work up
to exercising 4 to 6 times a week for 30 to 60 minutes at a
time. Remember, though, that exercise has so many benefits that
any amount is better than none.
