A lot of people believe that if one exercises or does any type of physical movements for 60 minutes straight, per day, can help ones health and shed pounds. That’s nice and all but here in New York City, its very busy with lots of things to do. I am one of those New Yorkers with a busy schedule and I barely have enough time to work out for an hour, every day. But there’s never NO time where I can’t squeeze a small 30 minute cardio session into my day.
Sooo, is 60 minutes more effective? or 30 minutes?
According to an article on WebMD…
“A new study shows 30 minutes of exercise a day works just as well as an hour in helping overweight adults lose weight.
Researchers found moderately overweight men who exercised hard enough to sweat for 30 minutes a day lost an average of 8 pounds over three months compared to an average weight loss of 6 pounds among men who worked out for 60 minutes a day.”
The results of the following research project is very surprising for some people. But I believe that 30 minutes of exercise a day is just as beneficial as working out for 60 minutes a day.
