Preventing Cardiovascular Disease Risk Factors through Aerobic Exercises

SM Adodo, DE Omoifo

Abstract


This paper focused on the reduction of cardiovascular disease risk factors,
through aerobic exercises. The central argument here is that through
exercise there is the tendency for increased strength of the heart muscles.
When this is the case, what follows is a reduction in body weight and
ultimately less risk on the cardiovascular system. Generally, what could be
deduced from the foregoing is the importance of aerobic exercises in the
modification of cardiovascular diseases. Notably, such disease risk factors
are largely influenced by the individual’s lifestyle. The submission in this
paper therefore is that one’s consciousness of his health status can bring
about positive modification of likely risk factors.


Key words: Cardiovascular disease, Risk factor, Aerobic Exercise
