From http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews/9455589/Weight-lifting...

Senior author Frank Hu, professor of nutrition and epidemiology at Harvard School of Public Health said: "This study provides clear evidence that weight training has beneficial effects on diabetes risk over and above aerobic exercise, which are likely to be mediated through increased muscle mass and improved insulin sensitivity.

"To achieve the best results for diabetes prevention, resistance training can be incorporated with aerobic exercise."

Another study in the same journal found that people who already have type 2 diabetes can substantially reduce their risk of dying early from the complications caused by the disease, if they exercise.

Dr Diewertje Sluik, of the German Institute of Human Nutrition Potsdam-Rehbrücke, in Nuthetal, Germany, studied 5,859 patients with diabetes and examined 12 other studies.
Those who were moderately active cut their risk of dying from heart disease by around half and from any cause by around 38 per cent.

Moderate activity was defined as people who had a sedentary job but cycled, walked in leisure time or those with a job that involved standing for most of the time.

In an accompanying editorial Dr Mitchell H. Katz, of the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services, said the effect of exercise on mortality was greater than could be expected from drugs.

ADULTS

(18 to 64 years)

Adults should do at least 2 hours and 30 minutes each week of aerobic physical activity at a moderate level OR 1 hour and 15 minutes each week of aerobic physical activity at a vigorous level. Being active 5 or more hours each week can provide even more health benefits. Spreading aerobic activity out over at least 3 days a week is best. Also, each activity should be done for at least 10 minutes at a time. Adults should also do strengthening activities, like push-ups, sit-ups and lifting weights, at least 2 days a week.


CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS

(6-17 years)

children running in a parkChildren and adolescents should do 60 minutes or more of physical activity each day. Most of the 60 minutes should be either moderate- or vigorous intensity aerobic physical activity, and should include vigorous-intensity physical activity at least 3 days a week. As part of their 60 or more minutes of daily physical activity, children and adolescents should include muscle-strengthening activities, like climbing, at least 3 days a week and bone-strengthening activities, like jumping, at least 3 days a week. Children and adolescents are often active in short bursts of time rather than for sustained periods of time, and these short bursts can add up to meet physical activity needs. Physical activities for children and adolescents should be developmentally-appropriate, fun, and offer variety.


YOUNG CHILDREN

(2-5 years)

There is not a specific recommendation for the number of minutes young children should be active each day. Children ages 2-5 years should play actively several times each day. Their activity may happen in short bursts of time and not be all at once. Physical activities for young children should be developmentally-appropriate, fun, and offer variety.


Physical activity is generally safe for everyone.The health benefits you gain from being active are far greater than the chances of getting hurt. Here are some things you can do to stay safe while you are active:

  • If you haven't been active in a while, start slowly and build up.
  • Learn about the types and amounts of activity that are right for you.
  • Choose activities that are appropriate for your fitness level.family riding bikes
  • Build up the time you spend before switching to activities that take more effort.
  • Use the right safety gear and sports equipment.
  • Choose a safe place to do your activity.
  • See a health care provider if you have a health problem.

Hello,

 

Purified Water is plays a major role to keep your body fit and healthy. For a healthy and balanced life, I am recommending you to drink as much as water you can drink in a day (minimum 8 glasses is medically recommended) and then see the results after some days.

I just want to know what about the old age person. Are they need to do same exercise as young people? I think not only timing but also exercise should be different (at least in few numbers).

I think they no need to do all the aerobics for 2 to 3hrs just they play out door games for 1hr daily it is enough they will be fit and active and physically active

Nice tips. This will surely helps people how to workout and stay healthy and fit. 

Thank You for liking Global Vision NGO!

Physical activity is anything that gets your body moving.All adults should also break up long periods of sitting with light activity.Adults should get at least 30 minutes of physical activity 7 days a week, In order to stay young and fit.
One other way Get at least 150 minutes a week of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes a week of vigorous aerobic activity.I found this suggestion from evaidya which one of the most well-known trailblazers in the healthcare industry.

Great information, Adults should do at least 2 hours and 30 minutes each week of aerobic physical activity at a moderate level OR 1 hour and 15 minutes each week of aerobic physical activity at a vigorous level. Being active 5 or more hours each week can provide even more health benefits
