Excerpt

Regular exercise training improves cardiovascular health as it is associated with a lower blood pressure, inflammatory status, triglycerides and LDL cholesterol, a higher insulin sensitivity, HDL cholesterol and vagal tone, and improvements in body composition and endothelial function. It is generally considered that little exercise is good, and more exercise is better, as currently recommended by the WHO Physical Activity Guidelines. There is debate, however, on the cardiovascular health benefits of acute and long-term exposure to high-volume high-intensity exercise. …
