Which type of exercise brings the greatest health benefits?


A 2015 study showed that millions of people will regularly participate in sports around the world , a specific campaign for the long-term health benefits of existing data is very limited, but a new study provides reliable The evidence  shows that various common sports are possible and significantly reduce the risk of death directly related to the individual.

The World Health Organization recommends that adults and seniors exercise at least 150 minutes a week to reduce the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer and a range of chronic diseases. In recent years, more and more research has focused on specific areas of influence, including work (vocational), transportation, leisure time, etc., as well as types of physical exercise, including walking and cycling, on health.

People with higher levels of physical activity and activity are 34% less likely to die than those who have never or rarely exercised, but general evidence is insufficient to show that all forms of exercise have the same impact on health. Previous researchers have clarified the different effects of 26 sports on health benefits. They found that running and football can improve heart function, body aerobic capacity, metabolism, balance and weight status. In addition, football is good for muscle function, and in addition to running The health benefits of other sports football methods may also not agree with each other. In addition, the researchers pointed out that six common sports will bring certain health benefits, including aerobics, cycling, football, squash, running and swimming, while researchers surveyed 80,306 British adults who found aerobic exercise. Ball sports and swimming, cycling, and walls can reduce individual risk of death, with the proportion of risk reduction being 27%, 15%, 47%, and 28%, respectively.

Researchers from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) have previously listed the most effective methods of burning calories, with medium running and skipping at the top, followed by taekwondo and fast swimming, climbing stairs and jogging, followed by basketball, solo tennis. And football. The roller skating on the list, high-intensity aerobics, hiking, camping, ice skating, squash and cycling are relatively low. These effective fat burning methods also have a huge impact on our health, helping us maintain a strong body and strong heart and lung function.

In a recent study published in the international journal Lancet Psychiatry, scientists from Oxford University and Yale University analyzed exercise data from 1.2 million people to show which exercise forms were the healthiest. The researchers found that the three best forms of healthy exercise are swing, swimming and aerobics, and the optimal duration for each exercise should be between 45 and 60 minutes. The benefits of sports are the number one cause of tennis, badminton, squash and other swings. This sport is almost a resistance group. The combination of aerobic exercise and even high-intensity intermittent swing can reduce all-cause mortality by 47%. The second-ranked swimmer, which can reduce all-cause mortality by 28%, and the third is aerobic exercise, which can reduce all-cause mortality by 27%.

The researchers also found that the optimal duration of each exercise was 45 to 60 minutes. Less than 45 minutes reduced the effect. In terms of exercise frequency, in addition to walking 6 days a week, other sports are suitable for 3-5 times a week, with the highest effect once a day.

The researchers also pointed out that there is only one level of physical health. In fact, the mental health of the body is also important, and the best psychological activities are team activities such as football, basketball, cycling and aerobics.
