This year, when the epidemic situation around the world restricted the movement, the sport, many people applied sedentary and lack of physical activity. However, physical exercise is quite necessary because it is a great way to protect against diseases such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus type 2. In addition, exercise also helps protect people from some cancers, especially breast cancer.
Playing a sport doesn’t mean practicing for a few hours. According to a study in the British Journal of SM, it takes about 30 to 40 minutes for sport a day. If we can practice, we can stay in good health. This time period can offset the negative effects of a sedentary lifestyle.
Having reached this conclusion, the team looked at the results of nine studies. These studies based on data from 44,370 people from 4 different countries. They followed for 4 to 14 years and carry connected equipment to measure their physical practicing.
Analysis found that people who were physically active were less likely to die earlier than those with sedentary lifestyles. “The risk of death increases at a lower rate moderate to regular intensity of physical activity,” the study said.
According to the WHO, adults in the ages of 18 and 64 should exercise one persistent activity each week.
They need to have an average of at least 2.5 hours or at least 75 minutes of intense activity. Therefore, thay can keep the body healthy. This weekly interval is also recommended for the elderly. Children and teenagers 5 to 17 years old should practice at least 60 minutes each day.
Through the above analysis, we can confirm that longer breaks do not “cool down” and make the body weaker when exercising. In contrast, taking long breaks still offers certain benefits, especially for people with muscle size and strength goals.
