The Value of 25 Minutes of Daily Exercise

May 27, 2015

Bethany Simmonds, from the University of Bath, and colleagues assessed data collected on 213 people, average age 78 years. Those subjects who completed  more than 25 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity per day – such as walking quickly, cycling or swimming  – received 50% fewer prescriptions. The team also observed that very little exercise associated with a higher risk of unplanned hospital admissions: participants who engaged in 3 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity were twice as likely to face hospital admissions, as compared to those who averaged 39 minutes.
