What Happens to Our Arteries When We Exercise? | The Evidence Exercise | Episode 4

So, we know what happens to our heart when we do aerobic exercise but what about the arteries?
The heart, veins, blood vessels, and the arteries are part of the same very important system – The Cardiovascular System. You can read more about this and access resources on last week’s blog.
Today, we focus on the arteries and explore why aerobic exercise is so vital to the health of the cardiovascular system.

“The Evidence Exercise” is a nine-part series focusing on the research and evidence for including physical activity in our lives.
You can watch the series here on the SCPHRP website or subscribe to the SCPHRP YouTube channel to be alerted when new videos go up. Be sure to follow us on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter for behind the scenes photos and information.
Made with funding from The University of Edinburgh’s ‘Innovation Initiative Grant’.
