Hit the gym for better heart health! But not too often or it could kill you…

by , 21 October 2014

There's nothing new we can tell you about exercise and the benefit it has on your heart.

But what you might not know is that exercising too much can kill you!

You read that right…

In fact, when you do too much high intensity exercise, your risk of dying from a heart attack is higher than that of someone who doesn't exercise at all.

Two recent studies posted in the journal Heart explain that this has to do with the effect exercise has on your heart.

Read on to find out why and how you can protect your heart health by exercising just the right amount…

Are you ready to unlock the SECRETS mainstream medicine doesn't want to reveal?
Today you could learn how to end your heart disease worries for good, without being continually pumped full of side-effect laden prescription drugs - or carted off to the operating room.

Exercise can be fatal if you do too much!

For ten years, German researchers collected information from more than 1,000 people who were being treated for heart disease and were in a stable condition.
The scariest part of this German study revealed that if you already have signs of heart disease – even if you don’t know it – exercising with too much intensity could kill you.
Not surprisingly, participants who did little or no exercise every week were twice as likely to die from a heart attack or stroke. But what was surprising was that the participants who did the most strenuous exercise had double the risk too!
Then there were the shocking findings of this Swedish study.

You’ll cause heart problems if you keep exercising too much

Swedish researchers say young men who do lots of exercise when they’re young are more likely to have heart problems when they’re older. They specifically looked into the effect marathon running has on young men’s hearts.
They found it to cause problems with the regular beating of their heart leaving them with a condition called atrial fibrillation.
Because this causes the heart to quiver instead of beat regularly, you’ll need a pacemaker to ensure your heart can push blood around your body.
They compared physical activity levels of 44,000 men between 45 and 79 asking them about their exercise routines when they were younger. They also recorded information about their current heart health.
Here’s what they found:
·         High intensity exercise around the age of 15 causes 19% higher risk of heart problems.
·         Continuing until 30 leaves you with a 49% risk.
What was interesting is that the men who continued to exercise up until the age of 60 have a 13% lower risk of heart problems.
The reason?
Because of your age, you’re likely to put the brakes on exercising too intensely, say the experts. Your exercise limit is set by your body.
But when you’re in your 30s, you push over the limits because you feel young and fit. And this is the problem…
That’s why it’s important not only to listen to your body, but to do everything in moderation, even exercise.
Here are three tips to ensure you get enough exercise without causing heart problems.

Why not give your body exactly what it needs to burn fat instead of store it?

Maintain a healthy exercise routine for a healthy heart

Tip #1: Look out for signs of overtraining
Exercise is supposed to leave you feeling good. If you’re irritable, depressed or can’t concentrate after exercising, it’s time for a rest day or two!
Tip #2: Mix up your workouts
It’s essential you don’t just do cardio or weights.
With rest days in between, be sure to do cardio, weight training and stretching – like yoga – to keep your heart and body in shape.
Tip #3: Focus on recovery
All your muscles need time to recover and repair, including your heart muscle!
Do this by eating enough healthy calories and getting enough rest in between workouts.
You might be trying to lose weight and shape up by increasing your exercise intensity, but it can have the opposite effect on your health.
Rather maintain a balanced lifestyle to stay healthy and prevent heart problems.
