Lately there has been a lot of research into the ill effects being sedentary has on our bodies. During the day most of us are tied to a desk and remain there for long stretches of time. We commute to and from work in our cars, and return home only to sit in front of the TV.
The average heart beats approximately 100,000 times per day. That’s nearly 3.5 billion times in the course of a lifetime. The heart is only about the size of a fist and weighs between 7 and 15 ounces, yet it pumps up to 2,000 gallons of blood throughout your body per day. This is how our organs and other tissues receive oxygen and nutrients needed to stay healthy. Most of us don’t ever give this a second thought, but that’s a lot of work for one muscle and a huge responsibility with very little rest! So why not take some time to take care of the most important muscle in your body
