When many guys get into their 30s and 40s, they notice that they’re out of shape – and start worrying about death. I have started to notice the middle age spread happening to my body and I'm not thrilled about it but, I'm not overly frightened either.
Of course some others don’t worry about their health... they make the most of the last half of their life by buying a Corvette and sleeping with their secretary, I'm not considering this as an option either... but I digress.
Those who actually do something about their declining physical health by exercising are admired.
Unfortunately, a new study says this might be the exact wrong thing to do – and might lead to a premature death.
Doctors are finding that guys who get into excessive, vigorous, and unsupervised exercise habits can seriously hurt their hearts and increase the risk of cardiac arrest in a big way.
The key is to build up to vigorous exercise slowly, letting your body get more and more used to all the work you’re doing.
So I will approach this in the manner to which I was intending... very slowly! I can hear the doctors words now: "Don’t just jump in and run a marathon next weekend Eric, your heart might not be ready for it." Thanks Doc... I don't intend to.
