RE­GARD­LESS of your size, reg­u­lar ac­tiv­ity is good for your heart. That’s the find­ing of a study from the Univer­sity of Wolver­hamp­ton. Re­searchers recorded heart rate and oxy­gen up­take in 4,500 peo­ple un­der­go­ing tread­mill test­ing. They also mea­sured blood glu­cose, choles­terol and blood pres­sure to get a full pic­ture of par­tic­i­pants’ car­diometabolic risk (CMR). Those with the high­est fit­ness lev­els had the low­est CMR, ir­re­spec­tive of their weight and body fat lev­els, sug­gest­ing that be­ing fit and ac­tive greatly out­weighs the im­por­tance of body com­po­si­tion.

BE DEAR TO YOUR HEART It beats around 100,000 times a day. Show it some love by keep­ing it healthy.
