European University of Lefke School of Physical Education and Sports Director Prof. Dr. Caner Açıkada made statements due to the “World Heart Day” and shared information about the physical activities that should be done to protect the heart.
Açıkada stated that one of the most important ways to make the heart healthy and strong is to do physical activity, that people of all ages should do physical activity and it is recommended that they develop the heart and circulatory system. He continued his words as follows; For this, people of all ages are recommended to keep their heart and circulatory systems healthy. In order to improve the heart and circulatory systems, it is recommended to work at light and moderate intensity, such as walking, jogging, swimming, cycling, for at least 15-20 minutes. These exercises strengthen the heart muscle and allow the blood to circulate more easily in the human body. As exercises strengthen the heart muscle; It also ensures the capillary veining of the veins and the blood is sent to the farthest corners of the body to feed them. For this reason, it is recommended to do exercises at a slow and moderate pace and for a long time. In this way, as the heart muscle is strengthened, the veins are also activated and strengthened. The first thing to do is; We will see a doctor, preferably a sports doctor, and have it checked whether there is a health problem in moving and depending on our age, and increasing our heart rate to higher heart rates.
Saying that there can be many different movements in terms of exercise, such as walking, running, cycling, swimming, fitness, aerobics, tennis, football, basketball and many more, Açıkada finally said, “Man is as old as his heart and veins.” Therefore, we should not grow old because of inactivity at a young age, and we should strengthen our heart muscles with appropriate exercises that work for our heart.”
