Pump Up For Heart Health

"Cardio may be your go-to workout, but if you're not also strength-
training , you're missing out on important heart benefits.While cardio
keeps arteries flexible, lifting weights trains blood vessels in your
limbs to move more blood, taking stress off the heart, according to a
new study. Researchers also found that pumping iron lowered blood pressure
postexercise more than cardio did."
