One-minute bursts of exercise could prevent premature death especially from cardiovascular disease, the results of a new study show.
One-minute huffs and puffs to live longer
Running for the bus might be an effective way to reduce the risk of premature death.
A new study by the University of Sydney suggests one-minute bursts of huffing and puffing throughout the day could be as beneficial as playing a sport or going to the gym.
Data from wrist trackers worn by more than 25,000 “non-exercisers” across seven years was used in the study.
Researchers looked at the data and suggested large reductions of premature death risks could be associated with taking part in vigorous intermittent lifestyle physical activity.
