It’s confirmed, exercise is integral to a healthy lifestyle. Researchers separated non exercisers from those that exercised after sifting through fourteen years of death records. Those that did not exercise were in the high risk category of premature death. The results, from evidence based studies (Journal of the American Medical Association) decipher the code to longevity and exercise.

Researchers from the National Cancer Institute and Harvard University collated data from a majority of middle age adults. The data of exercise habits was drawn from more than 661 thousand of those individuals. Death records also confirmed that a little exercise also reduced the risk of premature death by 20%.

Those that exercised for a modest two and a half hours a week were rewarded by a reduced risk of premature death, and increased longevity, by 31%. Moderate walkers who put in around an hour a day were the biggest winners in the longevity race. This group of moderate walkers was 39% less likely to meet premature death as opposed to the non exercisers.

However there appears to be little or no benefits to anything beyond the daily hour of moderate walking. Another study concluded beyond this that strenuous exercise is also good. Researchers studied 200,000 individuals in respect of intensity and time. Those that spent time exercising vigorously, such as running, reduced premature risk of death by 9%. Those individuals who exercised over 30% gave themselves improved odds of 13%.
