Physical inactivity is recognized as a risk factor for coronary artery disease. Regular aerobic physical activity increases exercise capacity and plays a role in both primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease.1 2 3 4 5 The known benefits of regular aerobic exercise and current recommendations for implementation of exercise programs are described in this revised report.6 Exercise training increases cardiovascular functional capacity and decreases myocardial oxygen demand at…

This paper summarizes the available scientific evidence dealing with the relationship between physical activity and cardiovascular health in primary and secondary prevention, and focuses on the preventive effects of aerobic physical activity, whose health benefits have been extensively documented.

Exercise and its role in the prevention and rehabilitation of cardiovascular disease

Accumulated data suggest the need for both individualized/high-risk and population-based approaches to increasing physical activity across the life span.

Routine Assessment and Promotion of Physical Activity in Healthcare Settings: A Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association

The purpose of this statement is to provide a comprehensive review of the evidence on the feasibility, validity, and effectiveness of assessing and promoting physical activity in healthcare settings for adult patients to contribute to meeting the American Heart Association’s 2020 Impact Goals.

Resistance exercise training: its role in the prevention of cardiovascular disease.

This review will critically evaluate whether RT modifies CV risk factors and improves characteristics of CV structure and function and examine the separate and independent effects of RT in studies that did not include a concomitant study.

Exercise and hypertension.

A guideline for exercise prescription that considers the health status and age of the patient is provided, and regular aerobic exercise significantly reduces BP the equivalent of 1 class of antihypertensive medication (chronic effect).

Exercise standards. A statement for health professionals from the American Heart Association.

These guidelines are a revision of the 1990 standards1 of the AHA that addressed the issues of exercise testing and training and an update of background, scientific rationale, and selected references are provided and current issues of practical importance in the clinical use of these standards are considered.

Cardiovascular and behavioral effects of aerobic exercise training in healthy older men and women.

This study demonstrated that 4 months of aerobic exercise training produced an overall 11.6% improvement in peak VO2 and a 13% increase in anaerobic threshold, in contrast, the Yoga and Waiting List control groups experienced no change in cardiorespiratory fitness.

Exercise, cardiovascular disease and blood pressure.

Present evidence appears sufficient to include regular exercise amongst the useful therapies for hypertension, and the mechanisms involved in the antihypertensive effect of exercise are unclear, but sympathetic withdrawal is one factor involved.
