Resistance Exercise At Home

Resistance bands are very useful to do exercise at home. Chantis Mantilla, Ph.D., Exercise Physiologist at Baptist Health South Florida, says strength training is another important piece of physical activity, it is not just cardio what we have to do. "We should try to incorporate strength activities and a variety of them at least two times a week. With someone who has heart disease it is better to do low resistance higher repetition, because they are building the muscles, they are helping with bone development and maintenance without putting yourself at risk for that high blood pressure," she explains.
