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.

The podcast discusses the importance of exercise for heart health with cardiologist Dr. Jason Kaplan. Dr. Kaplan recommends at least 150-300 minutes per week of moderate exercise like walking or 75-115 minutes of vigorous interval training. He stresses finding enjoyable activities and gives advice for starting an exercise program. Weight training is also beneficial but aerobic exercise is most important for reducing blood pressure and improving heart function. Regular exercise leads to positive changes in muscles, metabolism, blood vessels, and an enlarged but stronger and more efficient heart.


  • Exercise is one of the most important things people can do for cardiovascular health and prevention of heart disease.
  • The biological effects of exercise are wide-ranging and impact the cardiovascular system, metabolism, vascular function, and heart health.
  • An "exercise prescription" should include the type, intensity, duration and frequency of exercise for optimal health benefits.
  • Moderate intensity exercise like walking for 150-300 minutes per week provides good cardiovascular benefits.
  • Vigorous interval training for 75-115 minutes per week can achieve similar benefits as moderate exercise.
  • Strength training is also beneficial but should be combined with aerobic exercise.
  • It's important to find types of exercise someone enjoys to ensure adherence and motivation.
  • Exercise has significant mental health benefits comparable to antidepressant medications.
  • Fitness levels can be improved over time through consistent exercise via changes in muscle fibers, metabolism, vascular function and cardiac remodeling.
  • Monitoring heart rate during exercise provides guidance on intensity levels for cardiovascular training.

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. 

This podcast is for anyone who wants to improve their health literacy and gain information to help them make the best decisions about their risk of heart attack, their cholesterol, blood pressure, risk of diabetes, weight loss and general health. Join me on my personal mission journey to prevent Heart Attack on a global scale. If you like this podcast, I would be honoured by a 5-star review and appreciate if you let your friends and family know about this podcast; you may even save the life of someone you love!

Are You at Risk of a Sudden Heart Attack? How Healthy is Your Heart? Really?

Heart disease is the #1 killer in the Western World. In Australia, someone dies every 28 minutes from heart disease. That’s 51 people a day. In the US, someone has a heart attack every 40 SECONDS! Fortunately, many heart attacks are preventable. However, regular exercise and eating healthy are no guarantee you won’t succumb to this silent killer.

  • 94% of Australians have at least One Risk Factor for heart disease.
  •  59% of Australians have been Touched by heart disease.
  •  Yet only 3% of Australians have had a Full Heart-Health Assessment in the past 12 months.
