3 Ways to Strengthen Your Heart

Taking care of your heart is extremely important and strengthening your heart muscles is even more important. According to Intermountain Healthcare, here are 3 health tips to keep your heart strong:

  1. Walking: Walking fast will get your heart rate up and is easier on your joints than other types of exercise.
  2. Swimming: Swimming isn’t just for lazy summer afternoons. Taking a water aerobics class or swimming laps can be a full-body workout that will strengthen not only your body, but your heart.
  3. Yoga: Although it might not seem like it, yoga is great for your heart health. Doing yoga will help you strengthen and tone your muscles. Certain types of yoga can really get your heart rate up, while still providing the calm that will lower your blood pressure.
