There is no doubt that exercise and physical activities play a vital role in improving our cardiovascular system. However, there is a threshold for everything. Too much exercise will surely threaten the heart.
I have lost one of my friend Mr Senthil who won the Mr India bodybuilding title due to a heart attack. This incident made me a deep look at this issue.
There are a few factors for the recent heart attacks of celebrities.
- Before starting an exercise regime, it’s better to consult a doctor along with general blood tests, lipid profile and ECG and get expert advice.
- The best form of exercise that protects the heart is to start slowly and gradually followed by periods of rest. Keep it in mind! Heart attacks don’t occur because your heart lacks endurance. They occur during times of stress.
- A full body check-up every 6 months is compulsory. Just to make sure you understand the parameters of your body.
- Such celebrities to get faster results to tend to overconsume fat burners and supplements which is one of the major reasons for heart attacks. One should always keep in mind to strike a balance between the proteins they consume and other nutrients to avoid a nutritional imbalance.
- Stress is another major factor that could increase your risk of heart and circulatory disease. This is could be because of their work profile and personal issues.
Early warning signs are the risk factors that when missed can often aggravate heart health.
