Many epidemiological studies have constantly demonstrated that regular physical activity reduces the risk of heart attack, stroke, sudden cardiac death, atrial fibrillation, and congestive heart failure, (Atrial fibrillation is an irregular heart rhythm). Besides, those who walked briskly for three or more hours a week were 35 percent less likely to suffer a heart attack or die from coronary heart disease than those who walked infrequently (Sesso,2018).

   Impeccably, the greater the intensity of physical activity the better, So the more we sweat the better. But no sweat doesn’t mean any benefit. Walking around the block or hitting a shopping mall is better for our heart than sitting around the house. Yet, don’t worry if we can’t do too much at one time. “It’s the total amount that matters. If we have time for only a half-hour brisk walk during lunch and then another half-hour walks at the end of the day, we’ll essentially get the same benefit as taking an hour-long walk. Therefore, exercises like walking helps the heart pump more efficiently, it also improves the strength of the heart and the way blood vessels respond to increased demands on the heart . However, the rate at which that happens is quite low, and should not preclude exercising in the first place, And if we’ve had a heart attack or some sort of cardiovascular procedure, cardiac rehabilitation programs do a great job monitoring and ensuring that the types of exercises that are being done are safe. “While walking is the most natural way to begin to exercise, we can do whatever we enjoy. It can be sports, going to the gym, social activities like dancing, or joining a walking group and doing a daily route (Sesso, 2018).

   As we already known that regular exercise is healthy for our health, as well as to strengthens muscles, but it also helps the heart do a better job of pumping blood throughout the body. However, a lower blood pressure a healthy heart pushes out more blood with each beat, enabling it to function more efficiently. This decreases stress on the heart and surrounding arteries, potentially reducing blood pressure. If we have high blood pressure, cardiovascular exercise may help lower it. If we don’t have high blood pressure, exercise may help prevent it from rising as our age.
