3 weeks to feel a considerable change in heart health


It takes about 3 weeks, 3 times a week Walking for unfit clients to readlize a considerable change in their heart beat. A heart muscle that is hardly used for aerobic exercise due to a sedentary lifestyle looses capacity, just like a leg in a cast looses muscle.

It is amazing to see the change happen within only 3 weeks. Where as an unfit heart beats unstable, rises quickly and needs MANY beats to supply the body with blood during exercise, a fit heart muscle needs less beats to do the same job. If you use a heart beat monitor you can almost see your heart muscle grow. Plus: you experience a clear change in wellbeing breathing fresh air and relaxing.

  1. Hello Manuela,

    I’ll vouch for the accuracy of this post. I recently started exercising by hiking in the mountains and found my heart got steadily stronger over the weeks. I also found that heart endurance:

    1. Is more like a dimmer than a light switch; it comes on steadily.
    2. is helped by encouraging yourself
    3. is easier achieved with “smooth/steady” than “all-out” effort
    4. will talk to you if you’ll listen. If it hurts, it’s too much.
