Just wondering..heart related?

I was just wondering...since your heart is a muscle, if when people have high bp and their hearts have to work harder to pump and then the heart becomes enlarged, it can inevitablily make them have a heart attack or heart disease...so whey when you work out and your heart has to work harder does your heart not get enlarged?

  • Exercising conditions your heart which in turn makes it more efficient. More exercise equals a more efficient heart which equals a lower heart rate whether its while exercising or resting. Its doesn't cause heart enlarging unless your heart is already in a fragile state. High BP can often be turned around with a good exercise plan. Btw, This information is not intended to take the place of a laughingconsultation with your primary care blah, blah blah.
