Jogging Might Add 5+ Years

Jogging Might Add 5+ Years If you're one of those active adults who really don't have much enthusiasm for cardio day, a news release from the European Society of Cardiology might help get you motivated. The Copenhagen City Heart Study compared the mortality of joggers to non-joggers beginning in 1976. A total of 20,000 people took part in the study, with ages ranging from 20 to 93. Over the course of 35 years, 10,159 non-joggers died compared to 122 joggers. So jogging reduces your risk of death by 44%

True Strength Moment: The most significant benefits to jogging came to people who took a relatively moderate pace for between an hour and 2˝ hours weekly. That's not much of an investment in running to see significant benefits. Jogging also has a positive impact on oxygen uptake, insulin sensitivity, heart function, lipid profile, immune health and bone density.
