53-year study on exercise just published!

Here's an interesting article on an exercise study just published in the October issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.

If you don't have time to read the whole article, here's a summary of their research:

"We found that there are cumulative benefits of physical activity across adulthood on physical performance in mid-life. Increased activity should be promoted early in adulthood to ensure the maintenance of physical performance in later life. Promotion of leisure time activity is likely to become increasingly important in younger populations as people’s daily routines become more sedentary."

In other words, if you want to have a higher quality of life when you're older, you better start being physically active when you're younger!!! ;-)
