According to a new study by the University of Texas Health Science Center (UTHealth) in Houston, the amount of activity after humans enters middle age will be greatly reduced, which is a precursor to many diseases. This is the first study of age-related changes in physical activity. Through a follow-up survey of 5,115 volunteers, the study showed that people between the ages of 38 and 50 had an average daily activity reduction of at least 30 minutes over the next decade and continued sedentary.
National guidelines recommend moderate-intensity activities of at least two and a half hours per week, or intense intensity activities of one hour and one hour per week, or an equivalent combination of moderate and intense intensity activities. They also do not encourage sedentary for a long time. Activities help control obesity, high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes. In addition, there is growing evidence that older people with mild physical activity are good for health, such as walking or doing housework easily.
“Given our research, the health consequences of age-related conversions from high-intensity sports to sedentary time deserve serious consideration and may pave the way for future activity guidelines, setting goals in these important areas, “Gabri El said. “Changing a relatively small lifestyle and taking advantage of missed opportunities to engage in active activities may play a key role in how people become more resilient in their older adulthood.
