Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) March 5, 2010
Forrest Blanding, author of the informative new Cardiofitness Can Save Your Life (Bascom Hill Books; ISBN 978-1-935098-04-1; April 2009; $19.95) reveals from a ten-year scientific analysis of more than five hundred key research studies that regular and, more importantly, correct moderate exercise could add seven to ten healthy years to the life of an average fifty-year-old American.
Blanding notes "The number one key to a better and longer life is a measurable fitness of our heart and its cardiovascular system. Eighty-five percent of our health benefits from exercise derive from cardiofitness."
Cardiofitness Can Save Your Life examines how many people today are wasting enormous amounts of time doing exercise that may produce only minimal benefit to their health. Cardiofitness does not develop simply from calories of exercise. Blanding says, "It develops best from just two hours per week or about seventeen minutes per day of certain levels of correct monitored exercises that most people can do comfortably."
The author describes a new Cardio 120 program, and a new Cardio Point method that can show people how to develop the level of cardiofitness they need in order to obtain optimum health.
Blanding provides an easily understandable scientific measure of this cardiofitness (called the CFR which is a percentage of average for age and gender) and describes simple tests for measuring it. Blanding shows that better knowledge of CFR helps to decrease the risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and even Alzheimer's. You can even use the measuring tool online from the book's website. It couldn't be easier to measure your cardiofitness.
Cardiofitness Can Save Your Life is intended for a range of readers from health and fitness professionals and caregivers, to anyone looking for scientifically supported secrets to better health and a longer life.
