The researchers told how long sports training should last to prevent the risks of cardiovascular disease.
Through research, researchers found that when it came to the type of physical activity, there was not much difference in the benefits of running a few minutes a day or walking a few hours a week. More than 90 thousand people who did not have heart problems became participants in the new experiment – they wore trackers and were engaged in a certain type of physical activity.
It was found that with inactive activities the likelihood of cardiovascular disease increased twice. In the group where physical activity was moderate, the risk of heart problems was reduced by 30%. At the same time, the upper limit of training was not found – therefore it does not matter whether the training takes two hours or 50 minutes, writes the weekly magazine “Profile”.
