Researchers Find the Answer to Senior Citizen Heart Health

healthy-heart

Researchers have discovered a cutting edge technique to help senior citizens improve the elasticity of their arteries – thereby reducing their risk of heart disease and stroke.

Led by Dr. Kenneth Madden, the researchers were able to reduce arterial stiffness by 15 to 20% in only 3 months time.

But wait, it gets better.

Unlike most cardiovascular treatments, the cost of this new cure-all is…….nothing, zero, nada, rien…it’s free.

It’s free because the treatment is:

Exercise

Wow!!!

Exercise instead of drugs…who would have thought of that???

The Study

Dr. Madden divided his test subjects into two groups.

  1. The first group performed one hour of vigorous physical activity for one hour, three times a week for three months.
  2. The second group continued to live a sedentary lifestyle.

Subjects were classified as sedentary at the beginning of the study but gradually increased their fitness levels until they were working at 70 per cent of their maximum heart rate, using treadmills and cycling machines. They were supervised by a certified exercise trainer.

.

And after three months, the exercise group was healthier, while the sedentary group wasn’t.

.

So, as a public service to all of my 65+ readers (and those readers with friends & family who are 65+), I will be posting “no equipment necessary” workouts geared toward trainees who are boomer age and older.

Enjoy

BTW, this post is for my Dad…who should be outside right now getting some exercise

  1. My dad has been an exerciser since he was about 35, and he still got heart disease, and gains weight easily. Unfair, as he’s always been a relatively healthy eater, whereas my mom eats lots of junk food, exercises a LOT, and doesn’t gain weight, though diabetes runs in her family, and all who don’t exercise and watch their food intake get it. I take after my dad, gain weight easily, hopefully I won’t get heart disease or diabetes. I exercise a lot, just like my sister, uncles, all but one aunt, and about half the cousins.

  2. A close friend of mine died of a Heart Attack, his heart condition is caused by him being so obese.”.:
