Bodyweight cardio is one of the best ways to get fit. That is, if you know what you're doing. There's bodyweight cardio, then there's just cardio, you know running, biking, swimming, that sort of thing. What distinguishes "bodyweight" aerobic exercises from just plain aerobics. It's not that the exercise community is completely together on this, but to my mind, bodyweight cardio incorporates some of the latest cutting-edge body exercise technology. For instance, instead of steady state exercise, bodyweight aerobic exercises often are done in intervals. Interval training is one of the best ways to increasing your aerobic and anaerobic capacity.
Physicians should "throttle back" from routinely ordering stress tests and prescribing beta blockers to patients before non-cardiac surgeries, according to a report by the University of Michigan released online this week. Studies suggest such pre-operative tests and medications do not save lives and patients can skip them without suffering complications later, the U-M physicians write in a special report released ahead of print in Annals of Internal Medicine. The article by U-M physicians appears as the American College of Cardiology and American Heart Association release new guidelines showing pre-operative medications should be reserved for only high risk patients undergoing complicated surgeries.
If you are wanting to learn about the most intense cardio workout for serious fitness then you have got to take the time to learn and implement the use of kettlebell circuits into your fitness program. Kettlebell training alone is one high intensity cardio and strength workout that is quick to get your attention if you have never experienced it before. Kettlebell circuits are even harder because they implement the combined use of many kettlebell lifts one after the other without rest. The only cardio workouts that will give you any significant physical benefit have to involve high intensity. As a strength and conditioning professional I can think of no better high intensity cardio workout than the kettlebell.
Cardiovascular health is vital for general health and well being. Many people don't realise the importance and don't do any cardio exercises. This can be detrimental to your health. Even people that are in a healthy weight range can have a bad cardiovascular system. There are many exercises that can be done to improve fitness. First and foremost is running. You can run around the block, run to your friends place or on a treadmill at home if you have one. It doesn't matter where you run as long as your heart beat is elevated and you are working hard. Simply running may not be appealing to you. Some people find it boring. There are many sports that can be played that will provide great fitness benefits.
Sorin Group (MIL:SRN) announced today the first inclusion of a patient in the Clepsydra clinical trial. The study will investigate the sensitivity to changes in heart failure status of PhD™ , a unique diagnostic feature using the dual sensor technology of minute ventilation and accelerometer to monitor patient's breathing and activity levels every day. The algorithm aims to provide physicians with both trends and indicators in order to highlight sustained changes in overall health status that could relate to heart failure (HF) evolution. PhD™ is available in the Paradym™ family of Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators (ICD) in Europe and under clinical evaluation in Implantable Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy Defibrillators (CRT-D) in Europe and US.
Most people want to get in better shape. Even if you are in fairly good shape, it is almost always possible to improve your overall body condition.
