Exercise can be more important to your future Health and Life than your Diet, Weight, giving up Smoking or any other Lifestyle Habit known. Yet much exercise people do today provides only trivial health benefits. The key to benefit is your Cardio Fitness in CFR. A new free computer program called CARDIO HEALTH can value your present level of the CFR. The CFR is today’s only scientifically valid measure of your Fitness that shows how exercise can improve your health. CARDIO HEALTH shows how specific amounts of and pace of walking, jogging, running, aerobics, weights and sports combine to produce your all important CFR and reduce risk of heart disease, cancer and add good years to your life. Cardio Health runs directly from the web site cardiofitnesshealth at the webpage of “Compute Your Own Fitness–” and does not require a download.
CARDIO HEALTH derives from a new book by author Forrest Blanding, “Cardiofitness Can Save your Life”. From the most extensive-yet analysis of exercise and health from more than five hundred published studies Blanding shows that much common advice about exercise is wrong. For example, doing more than two hours a week of exercise may add little to fitness or health. Postmen that walked 30 hours each week got the same benefits as did those that walked just two hours each week. 85% of health benefits come from aerobic types of exercise done about 17 minutes each day, and this can be at moderate intensity. Doing ten thousand step counts each week can be a terrible waste of time, and very high intensity exercise is not needed for health.
The new CFR health measure of cardio fitness identifies a person’s VO2 Max as a percentage of average for age and gender. The new book shows how individuals can actually measure for a first time their own cardio fitness ratio and learn what this means for their health. 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.
