Try to stay in shape, lead an active lifestyle and never go to sleep after my daily 10K steps? That’s great, but are you sure that it is necessary to go so much?
Medical journalist Michael Mosley and Professor Rob Copeland from the University of Sheffield Hallam conducted a small experiment to find out whether to maintain the shape we need to take at least 7 km (the equivalent of 10 thousand steps)? The conclusions reached by researchers that will please you for sure.
Participants in the experiment were divided into two groups. Those who got in first, on a daily basis were 10 thousand steps. Participants in the second group were invited every day to do three walk – around 1,000 steps each. Despite the fact that participants in the second group as a result of getting less exercise as a result of their form of physical activity was more effective
“The fact is that moderate load in the end, bring the greatest benefit, – commented the results of the experiment Professor Copeland. – In addition, to find time for long walks is always more difficult than for the three small training”, reports Rus.Media.
