40 pushups help prevent heart disease in males, according to a researc

Men who exercise one set of 40 pushups daily are less likely to develop cardiac diseases, according to a study.

The ability to perform pushups is related to heart health, according to a team of researchers from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

When compared to middle-aged men who could only perform ten pushups, those who could perform more had a 96% lower risk of acquiring deadly conditions like heart failure.

From 2000 through 2010, researchers examined data from 1,104 male firemen. They were instructed to complete as many pushups as they could. Additionally, their performance on the treadmill was evaluated.

At the conclusion of the study, 37 of the men had heart problems, and 36 of them were unable to complete more than 40 pushups.

Pushups are a free approach to help determine your risk of cardiovascular disease, according to the authors of a study that was published in JAMA Network Open.

The study’s focus was “middle-aged men with active occupations,” according to the authors, thus the findings should not be extrapolated to include women or men of other ages who work in passive occupations.
