Welcome to my podcast. I am Doctor Warrick Bishop, and I want to help you to live as well as possible for as long as possible. I’m a practising cardiologist, best-selling author, keynote speaker, and the creator of The Healthy Heart Network. I have over 20 years as a specialist cardiologist and a private practice of over 10,000 patients.
In this podcast, Doctor Warwick Bishop, a cardiologist, discusses the importance of preventing heart attacks and improving general health on a global scale. He highlights the alarming statistics of heart attacks in Australia, with one occurring almost every 10 minutes and over 20 people dying from it per day.
Doctor Bishop then delves into the topic of exercise and how short bursts of high-intensity workouts can be just as effective as longer, less intense exercise regimes. He cites a study by Professor Ed K Cole, which shows that a 10-minute bike session with four-second bursts of maximal exertion followed by a rest period of 15 to 30 seconds can improve fitness and muscle strength.
Doctor Bishop also mentions the benefits of combining short, high-intensity workouts with daily movement to get the most out of both types of exercise. He concludes by encouraging listeners to check their risk of heart attack and improve their overall health.
- Heart attacks are a major health concern in Australia and globally, with many being preventable.
- Regular exercise is recommended by the Heart Foundation of Australia and American College of Cardiology, with 30 minutes, five times a week being the suggested amount.
- Short bursts of high-intensity exercise can be effective in improving fitness and muscle strength, with a 10-minute bike session incorporating 4 seconds of maximal exertion followed by a rest period of 15 to 30 seconds being an example.
- Short sessions of high-intensity exercise have been shown to improve cognitive function and mood in the short term.
- Combining short bursts of high-intensity exercise with regular movement throughout the day can be an effective way to improve overall health.
- Increasing exercise intensity can lead to greater time efficiency, but it is important to be mindful of the risk of injury.
- High-intensity exercise can be effective for muscle strength and growth, as well as bone health.
- OsteoStrong is a franchise that offers a 10-minute workout once a week, maximizing fatigue in four separate muscle movements to improve strength, balance, and bone health.
- Virtualheartcheck.com.au is a website that can be used to check an individual's risk of heart attack and learn about preventative measures.
- Positive reviews and sharing of information can help to spread awareness and potentially save lives.
Australia, like the rest of the western world, has a heart problem.
Over 9 million people around the world die from heart disease every year.
Every 10 minutes, someone in Australia suffers a heart attack. And 21 lives are lost daily because of it.
The devastating fact in all of this is…
Almost every one of those cases could have been prevented.
