Physical Activity, Exercise and Sport: A Five-Star Path for a Better Cardiovascular Health

Claudio Gil Soares de Araújo

Claudio Tinoco Mesquita

Why we must exercise? Although this question has many answers, many other questions arise from it. Which are the benefits of exercising? How much exercise is good for health? Is high-intensity exercise better than moderate-intensity exercise? Are there risks in exercising? What to do if someone does not like to exercise? Do cardiologists know the literature on exercise and heart? These are sounding questions that should be covered to understand the real need of exercising.
