Now you have no excuses: A new U.S. study finds that even one minute of high-intensity exercise - such as walking briskly or taking the stairs - can benefit your health.
Researchers at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City analyzed data on more than 4,500 adults in a study on how exercise contributes to good health. Head researcher Catherine Zick and her team found that minute-long bursts of high-intensity exercise were associated with lower body mass index and other benefits similar to those resulting from 10-minute bouts of moderate exercise, such as walking normally, LiveScience reports.
Findings appear online in the American Journal of Health Promotion.
