According to research published in the journal Circulation, exercising two to four times a week can reduce the risk of death.
A 30-year study of more than 100,000 people by American researchers has revealed that the mortality rate was reduced by 21 to 31 percent in people who exercised for 150 to 600 minutes a week.
Dr. Professor Dong Hoon Lee (Dong Hoon Lee) says that there is no doubt that physical activity has a positive effect on health, but it is not yet clear whether more or less physical activity than the recommended duration. Whether or not being engaged has any additional positive or negative effects on cardiovascular health.
He says that three decades of research have examined the effects of long-term exercise on health and mortality across different age groups.
In addition, this research has also examined whether engaging in physical activity beyond the recommended duration has adverse health effects.
During this study, participants self-recorded their physical activity information through a survey every 2 years.
The survey asked participants about their family medical problems, health information, diseases and habits.
The study revealed that the mortality rate was reduced by 21 to 31 percent among those who exercised for one to one and a half hours per day.
Dr. Professor Dong Hoon Lee also says that to get the maximum benefits, it is important to make moderate to vigorous physical activity a part of your daily life.
