If you are one of those people who has difficulty moving with exercise for at least half an hour a day then we have some bad news for you.
A new analysis of the recommended daily exercise doses that have so far circulated around those modest 30 minutes of moderate-intensity activity a day that includes walking, running, cycling or any sport and recreation, has shown that health requires much more.
The results of several studies have shown that in fact, when it comes to regular exercise, our body has the greatest health benefits when exercising and staying active as long as possible, two or even four times longer than this.
Studies show that those who exercised regularly for no more than 30 minutes in a rough 15 years had a “modest” reduction in the chances of having a heart attack as opposed to those who were more active, 25 to 30 percent less likely to have a heart attack.
Scientists are increasingly convinced that the health effects of exercise are “dependent” on the dose with which we exercise, recreate or just be active (and do not sit or lie down), and this greatly “shakes” the previous long repeated 30 minutes that were said to be enough.
Cardiovascular disease is a growing burden on health worldwide and the “epidemic” of heart disease seems to be growing. Doctors point out that the recommendations for sports and activity addressed to the population are too mild and the numbers should increase and become more frequent.
Simply, 30 minutes of activity with average intensity, twice a week is too little to regulate high blood pressure in hypertensives, and they are probably too little for any prevention of such conditions.
