Cycling is not just an enjoyable activity but also an excellent exercise for heart health. Dr. Madar Raju, a cardiologist, shares insights on how cycling has helped him personally and how it can benefit others.

Optimal Cycling for Health

Understanding your body's limits is crucial when cycling for health benefits. Dr. Raju suggests calculating your maximum predicted heart rate and targeting 60-70% of this rate during cycling to ensure it's effective yet safe.

Health Benefits of Cycling

Cycling at this intensity helps burn fat, supports cardiovascular health, and can be particularly beneficial for individuals with chronic conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, and cholesterol.


Whether indoors or outdoors, cycling can significantly contribute to your fitness goals and overall health, especially for those managing chronic health conditions.
