Heart Arrhythmias: An Exercise Professional’s Primer
by: Len Kravitz, PhD
What you and your clients need to know about irregular heartbeats.
The heart does remarkable work. Roughly the size of a human fist, the heart pumps blood every second of every day, delivering nutrients and oxygen to organs and tissues, and sending waste to filters in the kidneys, liver and lungs.
