Speed up – and reduce your risk for weight gain!

Here is more interesting proof that it not necessary to spend a lot of time exercising to get benefits, as long as it is done a certain way (Fan JX,et.al.,2013).

The participants were 4511 adults aged 18-64 years. Body mass index was measured and accelerometers were used for measurements. The participants were divided into groups:

Higher intensity long duration walking, 10 minutes or more per day
Higher intensity short duration walking 10 minutes or less per day
Lower intensity long duration walking, 10 minutes or more per day
Lower intensity short duration walking, 10 minutes or less per day

Results showed that both high intensity long and high intensity short duration activities correlated to lower body mass index or lower risk for overweight, obesity.

The researcher stated that higher intensity physical activity of less than 10 minutes per day is highly beneficial for weight gain prevention.

The lower intensity activity did not make much difference.
