Recovering from A Heart Attack? Jump on a Treadmill Desk
Exercise is critical (under the supervision of a physician) when recovering from a heat attack however consistency is now proven to be critically important as well.
Swiss physicians tracking 200 adults who suffered heart attacks found that exercise whether aerobic, resistance training or a combination showed a significant improvement in blood vessel function over the control group who did not exercise.
However, within 30 days after test subjects stopped the exercise routines all positive gains disappeared.
Doctors concluded from the study that patients must engage in exercise that they will continue with throughout their lives.
Treadmill desks like the TrekDesk allow individuals to combine exercise with their work or hobby activities thereby alleviating the boredom factor that causes many to give up their exercise programs.
The message is clear. If you want to avoid a heart attack you must exercise daily and if you have had the misfortune of having a heart attack you must be even more diligent in you adherence to a daily exercise program.
Walking with a treadmill desk will keep you on the right track.
