Study Shows That Walking Increases Health
A study from the Pennington Biomedical Research Center finds that walking, even if only ten minutes per day, can be beneficial. Dr. Tim Church says a group of 464 women who walked for 72 minutes a week for six months improved their heart health and fitness.
Church cautions if you are looking to lose weight, you might need to exercise more than just ten minutes a day. A person’s metabolism can be elevated for one to three days following a workout. Church says this short burst of exercise is a start.
Church says even a daily ten minute walk can improve your health and make your quality of life better in your senior years.
