Heart health/active lifestyle

What are some good exercises for someone who just wants to stop being sedentary and maintain good heart health? I've been doing back exercises, using the leg press machine and shoulder press/pec press. I've also been lifting 10kg weights.

My problem is fast food. I have a problem with it. I need to learn some self-control.

        Yes. Lifting is good for cardiovascular health. There was a study done on fat deposits on the heart and those who did barbell training had lowet levels of fascular fat than those who ran. Keep in mind its one study and that doesnt mean you lift in lieu if running as those who lifted and ran had the least vascular fat and lifting doesnt do anything for making your lungs more efficient which running does.

      Both are good, but yeah you really want to do cardio. It's called cardio for a reason.

      Because I have asthma, I struggle to run much without needing my inhaler, despite not being fat. Maybe walking would be better.

    Why do I experience restlessness/anxiety for a few hours after cardio training? My heart rate remains elevated for longer compared to say weight lifting, I took the measurements. Am I not cooling down long enough, or am I training wrong? I use an elliptical by the way.

      Drink some full cream Milk and a protein bar, if you feel a strange taste in your mouth too It's probably lack of electrolytes
      Also iodized salt or Just salt is good for you, official RDI for salt assumes youre a sedentary boomer midget

      frequent and intensive training will increase overall cortisol in the body to unbalanced levels. exercise like everything else can have a reverse intended effect if taken too far. overtraining can decrease muscle growth and have a negative toll on the heart. the right amount of exercise reduces stress and strengthens the heart and muscles. maybe consider cutting down on intensity, duration, or frequency, especially if you're cutting

    Turns out you don't even need to run, even just walking is perfectly fine.
    Anecdotal evidence:
    >move to the other side of the country with gf
    >a small village by the sea, no gym and I did not take any of my weights I have at my parents
    >work remotely
    >during lunch break put on headphones and just go out for a 45-minute walk. That is enough to walk about 5km
    >recently had to renew my concealed-carry license which requires a medical check in my country
    >the doctor hooks up a cardiograph and almost immediately tells me "Your resting heart rate is very low, are you an athlete?"
    No weightlifting for one year, only exercise is a semi-fast 45-minute walk every day, got mired by a cardiologist

        Get into tech, there are so many software companies that allow remote work and that only ask you to show up at their location for major company events which is maybe 3-4 times per year

    My guy. The sneed oils + salt are the problem.

    Just do something you enjoy like walking to music or riding a bike.

    LISS cardio. Getting yourself into Zone 2 for an hour a day is very effective for cardio health and longevity.

    Marathon runners often have heart damage. Weights and some outdoor recreation like hiking or kayaking is more than enough

    I lift 4 days a week and usually do some other activity once a week like tennis or climbing, while working a part time physical labor job at night.
    My blood pressure is high sometimes, normal other times.
    I get chest pain a lot. It’s not painful, but uncomfortable and scary. It feels like it’s becoming more and more common. I had a physical 2 months ago and it started right after that, which pisses me off. Idk what to do.
    It doesn’t hurt when I lift, sometimes it does after, but it usually hurts at work and sometimes when I’m relaxed.

    bros ive always felt that i had a wonky heart, and recently when i had covid i felt like i was going to have a heart attack and was on the floor. Im done with covid now but it scared me pretty good. I had an ekg once in the past cause of some heart palpatations and they didnt see anything wrong.

    What do i do to get it checked more thoroughly? I want to get a physical so do I just mention it while im there
