Did you know that just 20 minutes of walking can help reduce inflammation? New research shows that a single 20-minute moderate intensity workout session can have anti-inflammatory effects. The cool thing about this study is that it does build upon other studies showing the benefits of physical exercise, but more importantly it showed that even people with reduced strength or mobility can benefit, even if they just perform some fast walking for 20 minutes or more. This may also help develop new therapies for individuals with auto immune disease!! Go for a fast walk and enjoy the benefits!!
I just read an interesting article that discussed a study from Brigham Young University about the effects of running and knee pain. It found that in healthy runners between the ages of 18-35, running for thirty minutes did not cause soreness and swelling. In fact, it actually reduced inflammation. In other words running might be beneficial for the knees and help prevent arthritis. Though, I believe the key terms here are “healthy runners” and “thirty minutes,” because much longer runs might not be as helpful to the knees and if the runner isn’t as healthy, running may not be as beneficial. The study went on to state that running is actually better for the knees than sitting! Running outdoors is also considered better than on a treadmill due to the varying terrain and the effects of gravity. Treadmills can more easily cause repetitive stress injury because there is less variation in that particular running surface.
Did you know that increasing your fitness level, just a little, might help reduce your chance of dying an early death. Researchers looked at the records of more than 10,000 people and found that simply ramping up the fitness levels a from low to intermediate or higher, made men 44% less likely to die from an early death compared to the couch potato. More research is now concluding that exercise is literally the fountain of youth. Re-examine your exercise priorities now that the nice weather is upon us. Pick up the intensity just a little, it will pay off…!!
