Weight training

While aerobic exercise has typically been perceived as essential to cardiovascular fitness, weight training – anaerobic exercise — has also demonstrated benefits. Weight training produces a widening of blood vessels in response to increased flow, one of the key contributors to heart health. Although it can cause small increases in arterial stiffness, research on weight training showed greater increases in blood flow compared to cycling. Weight training also helps promote heart health as good cross-training for aerobic exercise such as running, swimming and cycling.
