Conversely, every 10 minutes spent sitting was tied to worse biomarker results. These results add to a growing body of evidence that suggests physical activity can lower the risk of heart disease. “It’s important to replace time spent sedentary with any intensity level of activity,” Ahmed Elhakeem, the study’s author and a professor of epidemiology at the University of Bristol, said in a statement.

Yes indeedie Mr. Erin Brodwin, of Business Insider, physical training has “some” value, but running after godliness holds out a promise for the life to come. After all no amount of physical exercise can permanently stop death.
Business Insider might want to consider that little tid-bit before lecturing us on exercise.
For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come. (1 Timothy 4:8)

(sciencealert.com)—This isn’t the first time two forms of exercise – cardio and strength training – have been tied to anti-aging benefits. Aerobic exercise, or cardio, is the type of workout that gets your heart pumping and sweat flowing, while strength training helps keep ageing muscles from weakening over time. Both of those types of exercise are important for the heart, parts of which can grow stiff with age. The left chamber of the heart, which plays a key role in supplying the body with freshly oxygenated blood, is especially susceptible to age-related damage. A recent study published in January in the journal Circulation found that adults who practiced supervised exercise four to five days a week saw significant improvements in their heart’s performance over two years when compared with a control group that did only basic stretching and balancing moves. Those results suggest that some stiffening in the heart can be prevented or even reversed with regular aerobic exercise. “Based on a series of studies performed by our team over the past five years, this ‘dose’ of exercise has become my prescription for life,” said Benjamin Levine, the author of the study and a professor of internal medicine at the University of Texas Southwestern. Regular movement seems to have benefits for the ageing brain as well.
