How Much Exercise Do You Do In Front Of A Computer Desk?

- Aug 01, 2017-

The perils of sitting all day aren’t good。 Researchers have shown that remaining stationary for extended periods of time (like at your 9-to-5 desk job) can be detrimental to your health。 While exercise is a big part of offsetting the harmful effects of sitting, it was unclear how many gym sessions were needed to help — until now。

The proportion of exercise time depends on how long you sit: typical eight-hour people spend at least one hours a day exercising, and if you sit for six hours a day, you can spend half an hour exercising. The study also shows that exercise does not have to be so abrupt and rigorous as to penetrate one days, as simple as walking.

Fitting in an hour of exercise a day sounds especially daunting if you have a desk job, but there are plenty of workouts you can complete before and after work。 Even if it means taking a 10-minute walk during lunch, your body will thank you in the long run。
