Walking, swimming, cycling, rowing, cross country skiing are the exercises that provide the greatest benefit to the heart & circulation, both in terms of prevention and treatment. This requires a mild, constant effort.
While walking, the blood flow returning to the heart increases as the veins of lower limbs contract, and this leads to a series of benefits:
- it helps stabilize the heartbeat, preveting arrhythmia.
- it protects against arteriosclerosis.
