Usually the best time to exercise is in the morning. A new study has been conducted on how different the lives of those who exercise at different times are. According to a study published in Nature Communications, people who exercise in the afternoon can live longer than those who exercise in the morning or evening.
In the study, the time from 11 am to 5 pm, 5 pm to midnight and 5 am to 11 am is considered. It is also emphasized that it is better not to do moderate to vigorous activity at any time of the day. The study involved 92,000 people in the UK and their statistics were assessed against a biomedical database.
Participants were given accelerometers, which measured how often and how intensely they worked out over a seven-day period. Then, when the researchers studied the mortality data several years later, about three percent of the participants were not in this world. Of the participants who died, 1,000 were suffering from heart disease and 1,800 were suffering from cancer.
According to the study, the risk of death was lower in those who did physical activity in the afternoon compared to morning and evening. The same was true for some people who had a mixed workout schedule or who regularly changed their workout schedule.
In the report of Indian Express, Dr. Ashish Contactor, Director of Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine at Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital, says, “This interesting study once again underlines the importance of moderate to intense physical activity.”
Ashish says about the study, moderate to intense physical exercise can prevent death from cancer and cardiovascular disease. He says that the best time for working out is not important. Rather, working out regularly is more important.
The key is to make exercise and physical activity a regular and weekly part of your routine. The best thing is to do it according to your convenience, which can be maintained for a long time and the most important thing remains the same. It is clear that it is not easy to agree with the results of the study, unless we gain a wider benefit from its results.
