Last weeks excerpt of All Gain, No Pain on how stress influences movement and pain got a lot of attention. It seems stress is a popular topic and a large concern for many people.

Heart health is also important. That’s one of the many reasons we are in the exercise business at IFAST.

I’ve spent a lot of time learning about how the heart really works, and while you always hear about how stress impacts heart health, you may not really understand how this is so (hint: it’s most likely not your cholesterol).

Rather than me writing a lengthy and somewhat dry and boring explanation about how a high-stress lifestyle influences your risk of a heart attack, I thought this video from Dr. Thomas Cowan, would be a good introductory message for you.

Later this week, I’ll be back with some useful advice to actually help you reduce your stress levels. I promise that it will be more than just “you need to reduce your stress.”
