Harvard Study Supports Bill Phillips’ Exercise Rx
A Study by Harvard Researchers of More than 40,000 Men Age 40 – 75 Concludes Intense Aerobic Exercise plus Weight Training is the Most Effective Way to Improve Heart Health (and Longevity)
USA TODAY (AP) — Moderate physical activity is good for preventing heart disease, but revving up the pace is better — especially if combined with weight-training, a Harvard study of more than 40,000 men concludes.
Researchers have debated whether pace makes a significant difference in protecting the heart, but the new study found that men who exercised at high intensity were 17% less likely to develop heart disease than those who did low-intensity exercise.
Researchers also have debated whether weight-training has a big impact on the heart. But in the Harvard School of Public Health study, men who engaged in weight training for 30 minutes several times weekly had a 23% lower risk of heart disease than men who did not pump iron. The researchers said the benefits may result in part from reductions in blood pressure and body fat achieved through weight training.
Given the independent results from weight training, the researchers theorized that adding weight training to a high-intensity aerobic exercise program would reap even greater benefits.
The study appears in the Journal of the American Medical Association. It is based on medical records of over 40,000 professionals. Participants were ages 40 to 75 at the outset.
Men who weight lifted and who also did intense aerobic exercise were 42% less likely to develop heart disease. The men who did brisk walking at a moderate pace for exercise were just 18% less likely to develop heart disease than those who did not.
“Weight lifting plus aerobic exercise at higher intensity is better with regard to cardiovascular protection,” said Dr. Gerald Fletcher, an American Heart Association spokesman and cardiologist at the Mayo Clinic

Here are a few testimonials of Good Life Fitness personal training clients:)
Summer time and the cold winter is the hardest part of the year to stay on track with motivation. How do you restart your fitness motivation if you were once in great shape and/or maybe someone recovering from a major set back? All too common I hear the phrases “oh ya I’ll start tomorrow or ya I’ll start next week/month when I have time”. The sad thing is the time is never right and all the stars will never in be in alignment to be a perfect time. Here is a question for you? What if you were once in a great shape like in high school or maybe you were in great shape before baby #1, baby #2 or what if you were in great shape before enduring a major surgery? How do you regain your fitness motivation? How do you find the internal drive to start up and get started? Throughout the years I have witnessed people start again with FIRE but fall short of attaining their goals. Why to they constantly restart? What is the mental thinking behind starting and stopping over and over again? What makes it so hard….is it knowing the pain that you must endure again? Is it sacrifice and dedication that is an obstacle? Is it prioritizing balanced nutrition and “creating” time for fitness? NOT sure but here are a few tips that I think will help you if any of the above pertains to you.
Tip #1: Change the mindset of shoulda, coulda, woulda. So many people think like this….you must retrain this mindset.
Tip #2: Forget your past failures if any. Focus on the present and not on the past…this is tough.
Tip #4: Understand that you will have setbacks and obstacles along the way…expect and overcome. You are not a tree and you do have the freedom to overcome
Tip #5: Avoid habits that led to your “down fall”. Identify them and overcome.
Tip #6: Goals daily, Goals daily, and goals long term.
Tip #7: Have fun…so many become tunneled vision and everything else around you suffers. The key is balance…have fun and enjoy the ride to your success.
Tip #8: Don’t be so hard on yourself…NO ONE ever fails in fitness.Share it!
