I’m all for cardio as part of an overall exercise program; it’s great for your heart in moderation. But, as pointed out in this recent Men’s Health story, it is possible to overdo a good thing.
Why is it so important to not go overboard? If you work out intensely and often, there’s a chance that, over time, you could develop what’s called an “athlete’s heart.” According to studies, “your odds of heart trouble decline as you go from sedentary to moderately active. But when you work your heart vigorously for hours a day, your risk may start to rise again.” This article points out these risks and suggests some possible solutions to lower them. I hope you find it valuable.
Yours in good health, Benjamin Fisher!
