30 minutes of exercise 6 days a week can extend your life 5 years

May 15, 2015

The health news today is buzzing about A Norwegian study published in the British Medical Journal.  It reports 30 minutes of exercise 6 days a week reduces the risk of death 40%.  Another statement is the life is extended 5 years.

 

So does all this mean that if I start exercising in old age, I will live longer?  Nah,  I doubt that is what it means.  I think the safest bet is to exercise on a lifelong basis and start now.   I've described myself and an intermittent exercise nut.  I get committed and work out for 3 to 6 months at a time and then slack off for an equal period of time.  I guess I need to stop doing that. One thing the really helps me is an accountability group.  If I put myself out there and share what my goals and progress are,  I'm a lot more likely to follow through.
