Francis shared “One of the best ways to improve heart function is to get it pumping! Making your heart stronger and more efficient can be accomplished by making it pump harder than usual. This is done through exercise that elevates the heart rate for 10-30 minutes straight. The recommendation for physical activity is 30 minutes per day, but three 10 minute sessions throughout the day are just as effective in enhancing overall health.”
He added “The best type of exercise for heart health is aerobic exercise, or more simply, sustained movement for that 10-30 minute window. It can be walking, swimming, biking, jogging, aerobics class… anything that elevates the heart rate at a sustainable level.”
