Study: More push-ups can lower your risk of heart disease


How many push ups can you do? Five or ten maybe??  Turns out, the more push-ups men can do, the lower their risk is for developing heart disease according to a new study. 

A new study finds that more push-ups you can do, the lower your risk is for developing heart disease. For example, middle-aged men who can do more than 40 push-ups have a 96% lower risk of heart disease compared to those who can do less than 10 push-ups.
