A recent study published in the European Heart Journal in October 2022 has found that health risks can be reduced through a relatively moderate amount of vigorous physical activity done in short bouts in a week.
The study suggests heavy physical activity of 15 to 20 minutes lower mortality by up to 40% and this can have better results when the physical activity is increased up to 50-57 minutes per week.
“15 minutes/ week was associated with a 16% to 18% lower all-cause and cancer mortality, and 20 minutes/week was associated with 40% lower CVD mortality. Further beneficial associations were observed for up to 50-57 minutes per week,” the study paper says.
