How is cardio "good for you" when it elevates your heart rate? the more time your heart beats, the more it gets worn out... a clock has a certain amount of ticks before the battery runs out, animals with faster heart rates live shorter. So are the "experts" right or is it a lie

    healthier heart = slower resting heart rate long term

      This. A 40-50 resting most of the time is way better than the normie who sits at over 70 now.

      Think of all the time spent resting, for example sleep, most people spend roughly 1/3 of their life asleep or at least trying to sleep. And so for roghly 30min to an hour of a high heartrate of like 120 BPM for cardio several days a week, coupled with an increased heart rate of 90BPM 2-4 hours for weightlifting several days a week, and then rest of the time you're at a resting heart rate at 50-60BPM.
      Meanwhile some normie is sitting at 70-80BPM every hour of every day, even when they're sleeping, and that's not including shit like when they drink, which will increase your heart rate further while resting, and that's if they're not fat, which if you're not doing cardio, let's be honest you're a fatty.

      Go fucking walk/jog you fat fuck, or better yet go do stairs.

    from the moment you're born your heart only get 100 million beats. if nothing else kills you you die when your heart beats for the 100 millionth time

    There have been many thesis done on why passive heart flex and all heart functions that improve with cardio are beneficial to you. And this is not counting in the facts that you get better and more veins and better tissues etc.etc. from training. You need to read a little. But apart from it all, even if that retarded theory of limited beats was true, it still proves cardio is beneficial because improved veins and heart from cardio leading to much lower resting heart rate easily puts you into profit of beats under a couple of months of training.

      Solid point. There no way that theory is correct but even if it was a resting heart rate of 60 is achievable pretty easily so over the night you go into the green easily even with a 2 hr workout at 170.

    your heart beats 24 hrs a day. You might only do cardio for an hour max a day. Cardio makes resting heart rate slower for the other 23 hours of the day which means less heart beats overall

    Because it makes you heart more powerful per stroke. The most efficient rate to train your heart for cardio health is between 65% and 75% of maximum. This is the rate at which the number of beats is minimized but the stroke volume is maximized, basically heavy weight (of blood) for low reps.

    Even if your story is correct you do realise that the more aerobically fit a person is the slower their resting heart rate?
    I used to do 10km runs in 40 minutes most days. My resting heart rate was in the high 30s.
    Normal unrested heart rate is 80.

      100+ is not a normal RHR even for an obese person, they are usually in the high 70s or 80s. An untrained normal person is likely in the 60s or 70s. Of course this is averages because it's genetic and depends on other shit.

    endurance athletes tend to develop worse hearts that sedentary people, all that chronic stress on the heart

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8294842/

    Humans were never designed to do cardio for long periods of time on a regular basis. We are actually evolved to be sedentary to conserve precious energy with short burst of energy to hunt food.

      > Regular physical exercise is imperative for the maintenance of optimal health and longevity and should be globally encouraged. There is emerging evidence that a proportion of athletes show high CAC scores, a higher plaque burden and myocardial fibrosis compared with age- and Framingham-matched controls. The mechanism and significance of these findings are unclear. Current limited data find no association between a high CAC score and all-cause mortality in master athletes.

      > Moderate physical exercise is associated with an irrefutable reduction in cardiac morbidity and mortality. The current guidelines recommend at least 150 min of moderate exercise or 75 min of vigorous exercise per week. Endurance athletes perform exercise at a level that is 10- to 20-fold greater than these recommendations.

      So "endurance athletes" means AT LEAST 25 hours of exercise per week

      Yeah, no need to overdue it by going hard for hours. 20-30 minutes of moderate cardio 5 days per week is good enough for me.

      >endurance
      yea putting prolonged stress on your heart in order to out perform others doing the same stress is ofc going to destroy your heart. But that can be said for pretty much any sport, most olympic athletes actually wreck their bodies because they're competing to the be the best in their field, they literally push their body to the extreme limits, which naturally will destroy it.
      If you're a regular person exercising for fitness' sake and not to outdo everyone else then you aren't not even coming close to putting that measure of stress on your body.
      >We are actually evolved to be sedentary to conserve precious energy with short burst of energy to hunt food.
      So yea a few days a week simulate this with 30min-1hour of cardio you fucking moron. Training for an endurance race will ofc fuck you up, cardio a few times a week for short period will not and will actually benefit you.
      fucking moron.

      the good old "if we found this in a sedentary person they're probably fucked, so let's apply it to athletes"
      if you worry about this you should also worry about athletes having bradycardia as if it means anything

    Cuz while it raises your heart rate, it also trains your heart to beat slower. So all the times you're not doing cardio your heart has less strain

    All itt are wrong. Cardio helps your heart because

    >it actively expands your left ventricle up to around 15%, meaning your VO2 max and efficiency increases by this margin, it has nothing to do with number of resting bpm
    >you're encoraging it to work instead of just letting it slowly atrophy until you die, this also has nothing to do with bpm

    By your theory the more times you used a muscle, the more it'd get worn out and it would always be able to accomplish less and less. But the exact opposite happens. Think a little wtf

      Pic related is data from my apple watch which I've been wearing for less than a year. I started trying to get fit and doing regular cardio a little over 5 weeks ago. My resting heart rate almost immediately went from a consistent (for many months) low 80s to high 60s. I think it will continue to slowly trend lower as long as I keep up with my cardio.

      It does to me, and I think a lot of women really. It's supposed to be good for your cardiovascular health (which is obv why it's called cardio.) Unless you have like some congenital heart disease like arrhythmia you should be fine.

    If by running every day for one hour at 150bpm, say that intensive training could just drop your resting heart rate from 70 to 60, then you would have 9% less heartbeats per day over all
    >but what about sleep you didnt account for it
    Either it’s equal, in which case it’s irrelevant, or it weighs in the favor of the runner since they would likely have a lower heart rate while sleeping too

    Idiot dumbfuck, learn to google basic stuff.
    Now that I've let that out, you are basically subjecting your heart to a temporary stressful situation so that it will be healthier and stronger overall. Antifragility and whatnot.
