    One of the many benefits of regular exercise is that it helps prevent heart disease. Aerobic activities increase heart rate, strengthen the heart muscle, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, reduce stress, and improve circulation, all of which are good for your heart. Exercise improves the heart function in other ways as well. If you have heart disease, your doctor can help you determine which exercises are right for you. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about how exercise helps the heart, which exercises are best, and much more.
