Exercise recommendations more than needed for healthy life

Exercising 150 minutes per week is not the health standard everyone should meet, says a UBC study, UPI reported.

“The preponderance of evidence simply does not support this contention,” said UBC’s Darren Warburton and Shannon Bredin. “There is compelling evidence that health benefits can be accrued at a lower volume and/or intensity of physical activity. These health benefits are seen in both healthy and clinical populations.”
