Fitness Tip of the Day!
Weight-Lifting and the Cardiovascular System
Weight-lifting builds strong bones and muscles, but isn't so good for the CV system. Cholesterol isn't lowered, and, after many years, the arterial wall stiffens (decreased compliance). Weight-lifters should incorporate some type of aerobic exercise into their routine.
