Short periods of vigorous exercise are more “healthy” than slow ones, reducing mortality by 18%.

A few days ago (October 27, 65), a new study published in the European Heart Journal clearly shows that if people “physical education“Having a very short period of time, 2 minutes at a time, for a total of 15 minutes a week, will have a positive effect onhealthMore than a short exercise for a long time, called a phenomenon. “Hare and Tortoise” the first exercise will help.Reduce the risk of death by 18%, leading to a longer life.

Dr Matthew N. Ahmadi, the researcher from the University of Sydney. Australia has revealed that its research findings Vigorous exercise that lasts for short periods of time a day but continues throughout the week. can help people live longer

This clearly shows that “time” will no longer be an obstacle for him to “Exercise” regularly. And it might be an interesting option for people who don’t have a lot of time. The research results of this research team are divided into two main topics, which are related.

1. “Exercise” reduces the risk of stroke / heart attack

The first story.. is a study of resultsphysical educationwith a risk of stroke or heart attack Almost 90,000 volunteers were part of the experiment, with an average age of 62 years for the experimental group. more exercise Indeed reduces the risk of coronary artery disease, for example, ifExercising until you burn 500 calories will reduce your risk of coronary artery disease by 30%.

The interest of this research lies in the study of the phenomenon. “Hare and Tortoise” by researchers still If we compare 2 people who exercise to burn the same amount of energy. but gives resultshealthof different blood vessels and heart

For example, person 1 physical educationHeavier cardio such as jogging, brisk walking, but the second person does light exercise such as walking The risk of stroke and heart attack was lower than the second person.

This phenomenon supports that In exercise “rabbit” is to work harder for short periods. It will have a better effect than exercise like “Turtle”, that is, go slowly for a long time.

So if you wantphysical educationto eliminate calories while reducing the risk of coronary artery disease it is recommended thatFA change from a 14 minute walk a day “Brisk walking” 7 minutes a day can reduce the risk of coronary artery disease by 14%. (However, no matter what kind of exercise it is, it’s good. better than not doing it at all)

2. “Exercise” reduces the risk of coronary heart / brain disease and cancer.

Second story.. This study was to study the effect of vigorous activity on the risk of coronary heart disease. cerebrovascular disease and cancer by using 72,000 people in the experiment, and the results were found to exercise at least 6 MET (6 times more energy than at rest), such aswalk fastorjogging reduces deaths from coronary heart disease cerebrovascular disease and cancer, and can reduce more according to the duration of such exercise

It was found that with at least 15 minutes of physical activity per week, the death rate from these diseases was reduced by 16-18%, and with at least 20 minutes of physical activity per week, the death rate was reduced by 40%. It is clear that the mortality rate is even more reduced until the exercise is 50-57 minutes per week (the longer the exercise period than 57 minutes, the effect will begin to stabilize).

The research team further reported that exercising for 15 minutes a week reduced the risk of death by 18% and reduced the risk of cardiovascular disease by 15%, while exercising for 12 minutes a week reduced the risk of cancer. 36% less risk of death from all causes.

In conclusion, vigorous exercise, even for a short time, can help people be healthier. Reduce the incidence of more serious diseases

Read up to this line.. “Working people”, especially office workers, won’t complain that they don’t have time.physical education” again because I only get up and do that for 2-15 minutes a week. enough to help youhealthyand have a long life
