It is widely known that there are many benefits to fit, but a big new study has shown that jumping out at the gym is virtually the worse you can do for your health.
In fact, the study does not exert can be more harmful to your health than to smoke.
New findings, published Friday in the JAMA Network Open magazine, describe how researchers at the Cleveland Clinic studied 122,007 patients from 1991 to 2014 and placed them under third-party testing and later recorded mortality. Researchers found a clear link between a longer and healthier life and high levels of exercise. The report requires that healthcare professionals encourage patients to achieve and maintain a robust exercise routine.
“Cardiovascular fitness is inversely associated with long-term mortality without observed upper limit of benefit,” the study says. “Extremely high aerobic fitness was associated with the greatest survival and was associated with elderly patients and patients with high blood pressure”.
Dr Wael Jaber, co-author of the study, called the results surprisingly.
“Being inappropriate on a treadmill or in an exercise test has a worse prognosis of death than being hypertonic, being diabetic or being a current smoker,” told Jaber of CNN. “We have never seen anything as pronounced as this and as objective as this.”
The study also looked at the risk of overactivity and found that “ultra” practitioners did not face higher risk of death: research consistently found that the more one practiced the lower mortality rate.
