There's a lot of evidence that walking can help you live longer, but did you know that brisk walking can also reduce the risk of heart failure?
Brisk walking is defined as a pace that makes you breathe harder than normal and leaves you sweating. It's pretty close to a jog, and it can be done outside or on a treadmill.
The benefits of brisk walking include:
Reduced resting heart rate
Increased lung capacity
Improved blood pressure levels
One study found that people who walk briskly for at least 6 hours every week have a 56% lower risk of developing heart failure than those who don't take any regular exercise at all. The study also showed that people who walk for less than an hour each week have about half the risk of developing heart failure compared to those who don't exercise at all.
