Exercise Prevent Coronary Heart Disease Risk

The increasingly sophisticated medical treatment does not necessarily work to heal the disease. Still need one more thing, namely sports. Apparently a lot of moves to prevent the risk of disease, including coronary heart disease.

Today the treatment of coronary heart disease (CHD has become better. Instead of using sophisticated medicine, there is also a variety of surgical procedures are more powerful as well. Among coronary artery bypass surgery, angioplastikoroner (using a special catheter with a tiny balloon ) , laser angioplasty, coronary aterektomi (with a special tool to scrape the plaque), stents (metal tubes used to keep arteries open).

However, many experts argue, most of the decline in mortality and heart disease are closely related to lifestyle. Especially the reduction of smoking, improved diet, and exercising habits. The habit of living a healthy life has many influences on coronary heart disease. Risk factors can be defined as a person's habits or circumstances that indicate an increased risk of coronary heart disease.

Until 1992, physical activity have not been included in the list as an important risk factor that can be changed. These include smoking, high blood pressure, and high levels of blood cholesterol. It used to physical activity or sport included in the list as a less important risk factor co-equally with obesity (overweight), stress, and diabetes. While the male gender and increasing age are risk factors that can not be changed. Research about CHD risk factors have long done. Among others, performed in 1953, against the bus driver who in their daily work just to sit riding the bus. Apparently, they have a greater risk of developing CHD than the conductor of many moves in a multilevel bus to collect the tickets.

There is another study conducted in 1970 by dr. Paffenharger the research team. Based on his research note, it turns out the port workers in San Francisco who in his work has little use of his physical suffering CHD risk 60% greater than his friends who use a lot of physical work. In 1975 the research findings that college alumni who keep physically active lower risk of developing CHD than those who are not active. Plus many other studies, it can be concluded that those who are not actively moving, closely associated with CHD.

Are the results of this study also apply to women? In a study from the University of Washington in Seattle stated, the risk of having a heart attack in women decreased 50% by doing the exercises were, in the form of walking for 30-45 minutes, three times a week. Other research results from the medical school of Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. The result, women are less active enough to have the possibility of more than twice the experience of CHD than women who are quite moving.

Many studies have stated, the effect is less active at the same level of CHD risk in men or women. In people generally fit their risk factors are well controlled. Besides heart bigger and stronger, which affect the increased blood supply and oxygen. Similarly coronary arteries vessels can be further expanded and become larger. Even in aging blood vessels of the coronary arteries they do not become stiff. The most important thing that makes people actively move has only a small possibility of having CHD risk factors they are all under control.

Gym exercises for 30 minutes each time with moderate intensity exercise was able to reduce the risk of CHD. Workout harder and in greater amounts can further reduce the risk that, although the risk reduction is not linear. Exercise of moderate intensity exercise is said to have a pulse when reaching approximately 70-75% and a maximum pulse rate. Maximum pulse rate is 220 minus age in units of years. So, for example, for a person aged 40 years, said moderate exercise after exercise when pulse can mencapaf between 70-75% of the 220-240, which is between 126-135 beats per minute.

Many studies have warned not to misunderstand that the exercises with intensity offhand actually inadequate. Dr. Timo Lakka from the University of Kuopio in Finland for five years conducting research on the 1453 middle-aged men free of CHD at the beginning. He classifies them based on the frequency and intensity of exercise. The result, those who do exercise with moderate to strong intensity at least 2.2 hours per week, then the risk of developing CHD is less than half of those who do not exercise regularly. Besides, only aerobic exercises with moderate to hard intensity, like brisk walking, jogging, biking, and others, can provide protection.

Physical activity intensity light-light alone - like a slow walk, fishing, gardening, and others - do not lower the risk of coronary heart disease. Thus, it can be concluded, to optimize the benefits of sport exercises in our efforts to tackle coronary heart disease, do exercises with a dose sufficient (moderate to hard), in addition to setting the correct lifestyle. These exercises must be done for the sport beyond. Exercise is a lifetime contract, as a commitment to maintain health over a lifetime.
