The American Heart Association released  article titled:

Resistance Exercise Training in Individuals With and Without Cardiovascular Disease:

Here is what the ABSTRACT said:

Resistance training not only can improve or maintain muscle mass and strength,

but also has favorable physiological and

clinical effects on cardiovascular disease and risk factors.

This scientific statement is an update of the previous (2007) American Heart Association scientific statement

Since then accumulating evidence suggests resistance training

 is a safe and effective approach for improving cardiovascular

health in adults with and without cardiovascular disease.

This scientific statement summarizes the benefits of resistance training alone

or in combination with aerobic training for improving

 traditional and nontraditional cardiovascular disease risk factors.

It  also addresses the utility of resistance training for

promoting cardiovascular health in varied healthy and clinical populations.

Because less than one-third of US adults report

participating in the recommended 2 days per week of

resistance training activities it more important than ever

that everyone starts resistance training.

As you can see even the American Heart Association is promoting

strength training for your heart and overall longevity.

Just like we have been doing at MSF for 20 years.

Whether you’re a seasoned gym-goer or just starting out,

resistance training can benefit everyone.
