Article - If Some Exercise Is Good, Is More Better?
Many people watch their exercise as they watch the clock when it's almost time to go home from work. In other words, they just try to get through to the end, with minimum effort. If the latest expert book says all you have to do is twenty minutes of aerobic exercise, five times a week, that's exactly what they will do. Then, if a new book comes out and says fifteen minutes is all you need, and only four time per week, you can bet they will change to the latter routine.
What folks like these don't realize is that even though there is no need to overdo it, getting the right amount, and not less, can be very beneficial. Indeed, it would be a shame to dedicate the time it takes to get dressed, put everything else aside, travel to your exercise location and begin working out, and then stop just a few minutes before reaping the maximum benefit from that physical activity.
Actually, there are several reasons why exercising more than just the minimum required can be of value. Let the following facts help you develop the ideal attitude:
- People who lose weight and keep it off typically burn 2,500 to 2,800 per week through physical exercise. That is approximately equivalent to walking for one hour each day.
- Studies show men who burned up more than 1,000 calories per week in exercise were less likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer than those who didn't exercise much.
- A recent study at Harvard School of Public Health studied the exercise habits of 70,000 women. Results showed the longer and more intense their exercise routine was, the lower their risk of developing diabetes. Especially effective were more vigorous activities such as aerobics and calisthenics. And women who walked at a brisk pace for an average of 42 minutes per day had lower rates of diabetes than women who walked less.
- Additionally, women who got seven hours or more of moderate to vigorous exercise per week reduced their breast cancer risk by nearly 20%, according to a study published in Archives of Internal Medicine.
