A recent study suggests exercising for minutes can have longer benefits for the body. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), researchers found that ten minutes of exercise can trigger an hour of metabolic changes. However, the benefits are said to correlate with how fit a person is.
Dr. Robert Gerszten of Massachusetts General Hospital, is quoted by the AP as stating of the findings, “Ten minutes of exercise has at least an hour of effects on your body We have a chemical snapshot of what the more fit person looks like. Now we have to see if making someone’s metabolism look like that snapshot, whether or not that’s going to improve their performance.”
More information about the study may be available in the Science Translational Medicine journal.
