A 10-minute work could be the boost a body needs to have a good effect in a report from the Wall Street Journal. When the 10-minute sessions are part of an exercise program of 150 minutes for the week.
This theory stems from a study conducted by Medicine & Science in Sports conducted from 2008 to 2010. The research involved a total 2,109 men and women, with one-half the respondents being overweight.
Where is the initiative?
This is a little alarming but not really surprising. Out of the 2,109 participants, only 15 percent of the women and 10 percent of the men were compliant to the study, meaning that they were the only ones that exercised the requisite 150 minutes per week.
Compared with noncompliant subjects, all those who met the U.S. weekly exercise guidelines, regardless of how the 150 minutes were accrued, had significantly lower triglycerides, waist circumferences and body mass indexes, and improved cholesterol scores, tests showed.
