Prevent Heart Disease through Strength Training

People say they want to stay “young at heart.” But are they willing to lift weights to do it? They should be research shows.

In one survey of 4,000 people, scientists concluded that weightlifting has a greater effect of lowering the risk of heart disease than cardio exercise. The study also supports earlier views that weightlifting is better for the circulatory system because the “oxygen expenditure” is more intense.

How much is enough? Surprisingly, as little as one hour per week. "Getting in the right amount of weight training is easier than you think," says Eric L'Italien, a physical therapist with the Harvard-affiliated Spaulding Rehabilitation Network. "And devoting just an hour per week may improve multiple markers related to heart health."

Heart disease is the country’s No. 1 killer and is preventable. Exercise and eating right are the top tools to improve our heart health and lower our risk for heart disease and heart attacks, according to the American Heart Association.
