Run a few minutes each day is as effective as a long jogging when it comes to extending life expectancy, according to a study published Monday, which also shows that a rider lives longer on average a person inactive.
This study from the University Iowa, published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, shows that people who are only five to ten minutes each day can significantly reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and mortality premature.
And the authors of the study found no significant differences between those at little or a lot, quickly or slowly.
Thus, people who have chosen race walk for exercise have a 30% risk of premature death less, and 45% less risk of dying from cardiovascular disease than inactive people.
The life expectancy of the average rider is three years higher that of a person who is not short, according to this study.
” As time available is one of the most important brake practice activity physics, the study could encourage more people to start race foot, “commented Duck- chul Lee, one of the main authors of the study.
The latter was conducted in Texas with more than 55,000 adults followed for 15 years, having age of 44 years an average.
“Even the group of those who traveled every week less distance, less often and less quickly at risk of mortality much smaller than those who do not run, “said the study.
” Similar trends were observed for mortality risk by cardiovascular diseases “.
The researchers also found a race 5 minutes brought the same health benefits a walk of a quarter of an hour.
A study published in The Lancet in 2011 showed a daily brisk walk of 15 minutes or half the recommended time, allowed to add three years of life expectancy.
