Walking and running are likely the best exercises for the heart. However, running can take its toll. I am beginning to see quite a number of regular long-time runners with severe degenerative joint problems and back problems. A number have had back surgery and hip replacement in their 40s. This should be of particular concern to those people who have the family background that includes arthritic joints and back problems. If possible, it is better to use a treadmill or stationary cycle for year-round convenience. In place of running, a combination of jogging and very brisk walking can be used, as long as the pulse rate stays in the aerobic zone. Walking with light hand held weights could also provide a great cardiovascular workout.
