BENEFITING: American Heart Association
Strengthening the upper body's muscles means decreasing the work of the heart and lungs, and putting less strain on these vital organs makes them healthier in the long run. In simpler terms, your risk of a heart attack diminishes as you tone your body. That's why the American Heart Association recommends strength training for maintenance of overall heart health. For every donation I will do a mile, whether it's walking, running or bike riding. In your comments, you tell me what to do and I will do it, and send you a picture of me doing the exercise. All money goes directly to the American Heart Association.
