it is never too late for physical training

according to a new study it’s never too late to get started with sport or activity and movement. Even in a higher age, athletic training can reduce unwanted weight and increase life expectancy. The positive effects are similar to those of life-long training people at people who only start with sports at the late age.

the scientists of the National Cancer Institute and the University of Newcastle in their current study noted that sports in the upper age contributes to many positive effects. The physician published the results of their study in the English-language journal “JAMA Network Open”.

health benefits be this during the mined

when people in the middle ages began with the sports training, led to the same risk of premature death, such as people who already trained their entire lives. Despite a later start of sporting activities, experienced the same health benefits, how long the user people affected, explain the experts. People aged from 40 to 61 years, which carried out the recommended weekly number of activities, according to the physicians had a 16 to 43 percent lower risk of early death. If people in early adulthood were enthusiasts, who were then but not more active they lost again all health benefits acquired through sport as a result.

how much physical activity is recommended?

national aerobic physical activity guidelines recommend that adults spend at least 150 minutes a week with moderate-intensity of aerobic activity or 75 minutes a week with intense activity or any equivalent combination thereof should, the scientists say. The amount of physical activity that corresponds to this guideline is reached, was introduced with significant health benefits in conjunction, including reducing the overall causes, cardiovascular disease and cancer Mortality.

benefits of longevity by sporting activity

the most evidence for the benefits of the mortality due to physical activity but date from studies involving physical activity for leisure only at a certain point was measured, usually in the middle of the life, for example, at the age of 40 to 60 years. It is little known, such as physical activity and leisure from adolescence to early adulthood and middle age the mortality rate can affect in the long term, the study’s authors explain movement. The scientists hypothesized that participants with the highest level of activity in all age groups would have the lowest risk of death. In the prospective cohort study, the data were evaluated by more than 315,000 volunteers. Of these subjects, nearly three-fifths were (58.2 per cent) men. Participants were in their enrolment aged 50 to 71 years.

subjects were categorized into different groups

the scientists categorized the subjects into different groups. Subjects which were higher or more stable periods of physical activity during leisure time, constituted accounted for 56.1 percent and 176.654 subjects respectively. A second group comprised subjects who increased their physical activity during leisure time in adolescence or later in adulthood. This group consisted of 41.193 subjects (13.1 per cent). Finally, there were still subjects, where physical activity was more pronounced at leisure in early adulthood, the activity but declined in later adulthood. 97.212 respondents (30.8 percent) belonged to this group. During the study, there were more than 71,000 deaths, of which were 22.219 deaths on cardiovascular disease and more 16,388 cancer deaths.

it is worth to increase physical activity always

increasing the physical activity during leisure time in adulthood after long inactivity during adolescence is associated with a reduced risk for premature death. explain the scientists. Adults who are aged from 40 to 61 years only increased their physical activity during leisure time, had a mortality risk that was comparable with the risk of a premature death in persons, their entire adult life consistently on physical Participated in leisure activities. These results show that adults who were physically active later in life, a similar mortality rate as lifelong athletes had and the biggest benefit of the activities previously performed (adolescence or early adulthood) has been lost. If the activity has not been sustained. Scientists had expected that participating, which recorded the highest activity levels during the entire adult age, show the slightest risk. Therefore, they were surprised that a subsequent increase in activity was accompanied by comparable benefits. (as)
