Alternate Ways to Exercise Your Heart

February is Heart Month, and did you know that your heart is a muscle that needs to be exercised? Revving up your heart rate through exercise or doing something you enjoy, like dancing or even walking briskly, helps build aerobic fitness.

Our bodies learn to move oxygen and blood into our muscles more efficiently. NorthShore Cardiologist Philip B. Krause, MD, shows how he likes to exercise his heart by drumming. Remember to check with your doctor before starting any exercise.
