HARD AND FAST EXERCISE COULD BE THE DEATH OF YOU...
When it comes to decreasing your risk of death and improving life expectancy light jogging might be the way to go.
A Danish study, based on 1098 healthy joggers and 413 healthy non-joggers, has found that vigorous exercise might be bad for you over time.
After researchers tracked hours of jogging it was discovered that people who jogged moderately, no more than three times a week, were less likely to die suddenly compared to fast paced runners.
When talking about strenuous running, Copenhagen City Heart Study researcher Peter Schnohr said “When performed for decades, this activity level could pose health risks, especially to the cardiovascular system.”
Turns out this study isn't revolutionary, past research and studies also found links between light and moderate exercise and long life.
In fact, studies have found that people who don’t jog at all are just as likely to die as people who jog fast and often.
“If your goal is to decrease risk of death and improve life expectancy, jogging a few times a week at a moderate pace is a good strategy” Schnohr said.
