Want to see something you’ve probably never seen before?

I’ve got a GREAT demo for you today that I highly recommend you try for yourself because it is super eye-opening.

You need a tennis or stress ball to do it like this. 

OK, ready? 

All you do is hold the ball and give it a hard squeeze … 

and then another … 

and another … 

and try to keep going 60 times, one squeeze EVERY second.

Well, that’s how hard your heart works for you… and for most of us, it beats around 100,000 times a day.

That’s a LOT of work.

This month we are all about showing your muscles some love – and that includes your heart.

As you might have heard, heart disease is the No. 1 killer on the planet, so it’s important to do your part to keep your heart healthy!

So today I have a list of 4 things that you can start doing NOW to protect your heart health:

1) Exercise most days of the week. (Make sure two of those are high intensity strength training at MaxStrength Fitness.

Here are just a few reasons why:

  • It makes your heart stronger so it can push out more blood with every beat, so it doesn’t have to beat so often
  • It raises the blood flow to your heart
  • It helps lower your blood pressure 
  • It makes it easier for your muscles and tissues to get oxygen from your blood
  • AND it helps your nervous system fight stress

It’s as close to a “miracle drug” as you can get! 

2) Eat a healthy, whole-foods-based diet that’s low in sugar and sodium, and rich in vitamins and minerals.

3) Limit alcohol. Did you know that drinking just 2-3 drinks in one sitting can raise your blood pressure?

4) Stand up more. Research shows that sitting for extended periods isn’t good for your heart, even if you work out.

REMEMBER … it’s the little things you do every day that add up to big health and fitness results!

Including keeping your heart strong.
