Hey guys, check this out.

According to the American College of Sports Medicine and the American Heart Association guidelines on physical activity,
to promote and maintain health, all healthy adults aged 18 to 65 yr need moderate-intensity aerobic(endurance) physical activity for a minimum of 30 min on five days each week or vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity for a minimum of 20 min on three days each week. Combinations of moderate- and vigorous-intensity activity can be performed to meet this recommendation. For example, a person can meet the recommendation by walking briskly for 30 min twice
during the week and then jogging for 20 min on two other days. Moderate-intensity aerobic activity, which is generally equivalent
to a brisk walk and noticeably accelerates the heart rate, can be accumulated toward the 30-min minimum by performing bouts
each lasting 10 or more minutes. Vigorous-intensity activity is exemplified by jogging, and causes rapid breathing and
a substantial increase in heart rate. In addition, every adult should perform activities that maintain or increase muscular
strength and endurance a minimum of two days each week.

I think it's a good study. Normally as people age, they tend to have sedentary lifestyle and this could result to a lot of health issues later in life. So sabi nga nila, exercise is the real key. You need to be physically active like engaging in sports, or maybe cardio vascular activities.... running is good by the way.

  • A bad day can always turn into a good day!
climbing up and down a few flights of stairs a day, instead of using an elevator, is also good.
