Standing and Walking Can Improve Health
In a recent study vigorous exercise was compared to a standing and walking workout. The vigorous exercise was performed in one hour while the standing and walking workout was based on daily activity. It was found that energy expenditure was the same in both exercise routines. What does this mean? Standing and walking exercise, such as taking the stairs instead of the elevator, can be just as beneficial as one hour of intense exercise. This means that a sedentary lifestyle can be harmful, while making a conscious effort to be more active can improve your life. So next time you have the opportunity, take the stairs.
