Additional Study Data

  • Individuals who engaged in one hour of moderate to vigorous aerobic activity a week had a 15 percent lower mortality risk.
  • The mortality risk was 27 percent lower for those who did three hours of aerobic exercise a week.
  • Finally, subjects who took part in one to two strength-training sessions per week had an even lower mortality risk. A full 40 percent lower risk than those who didn’t exercise at all. Pretty impressive huh?
