Walking is a good form of exercise because it’s free, easy to do, and we’re just born to do it. Humans were not meant to sit in one place for so long a day. In short, the average person should probably walk more than they currently do. If you have a fitness app on your phone, one of those fancy digital wristwatches that tracks all your data, or an old-fashioned pedometer, you can quickly calculate your average baseline.

Walking slightly longer and longer distances each day can also improve your fitness level, allowing you to (gently, slowly) progress to more strenuous exercise.

Health and fitness is not a race. Everyone goes at their own pace. Exercise is a personal journey that works best when you actually enjoy what you’re doing. Someone in your social circle might think you should be playing tennis, but if you don’t like the game, it’s not for you.

Hiking, swimming, biking, or something else may be what brings you the most joy. You have to push yourself out of your comfort zone, but not so much that you fear doing it all over again the next day. Aim for consistency and growth, not random efforts. You and your doctor will probably know what is best for you.

The Cleveland Clinic indicates that “everyone recovers at a different pace” after a heart attack. “This may be related to your activity level before the heart attack or the extent of damage to the heart muscle. It can take many months to develop an optimal exercise program.

The clinic recommends starting everything very nicely and slowly. “Increase your walking pace over 3 minutes until the activity becomes moderate (slightly faster breathing, but should still be able to talk to someone). If you feel too short of breath, slow down your walking pace,” they explain.

“Walk at a moderate pace for about 10 minutes the first time and try to add a minute or two each day.” Try to walk for 30 minutes most days of the week until the end of the month. Remember to cool down at the end of the exercise and go slower for the last 3 minutes.

However, if you notice symptoms such as excessive shortness of breath, chest discomfort, irregular heartbeat, or increased fatigue, you must stop exercising immediately. Contact your doctor immediately.

The average number of steps taken by adults per day is shockingly low. It also varies greatly from country to country. For example, one studyin 2017 found that people living in the US and Canada walk less than 5,000 steps per day. steps. In contrast, another study, from 2010showed that the Japanese do more than 7 thousand steps, and the Swiss – 9.6 thousand.

Hope all is well with Bob.
