Resistance Training and Heart Health

We have talked about exercise and what it means for joint health, bone health, and brain health. Now, let’s look at heart health!

Yes, but: With heart health, we almost always think of cardiovascular exercise. But what about all of the resistance training we have been doing? Does that have any benefit to heart health?

Big picture: Resistance training has a profound effect on heart health, and can most certainly be used as an alternative to cardio in reducing the risk of heart attack and stroke.

Go deeper: “Those who did at least an hour per week of weight training (using free weights or weight machines) had a 40% to 70% lower risk of heart attack or stroke compared with those who did not exercise” (Harvard Health Publishing, 2019). Read that again. 40% to 70% reduction of heart attack and stroke!

What’s next: Mark your calendars for Saturday, May 1st, 12PMEST/9AM PST! We have a cardiac nurse practitioner joining us for a town hall discussion.

Charles Martinez, NP practices at a cardiology clinic and is passionate about keeping his clients healthy and happy through preventative heart health measures. Join us on 5/1/2021 to learn more!

Also, please remember we can help! You have a team of physical therapists and personal trainers that can help create a resistance training program specific to you and your needs.

Please reach out to [email protected] to be paired with a provider for a free consultation!
