Don't just plod 'if you want a long, healthy life'

New Study says intense workouts for shorter periods daily are better for the heart and could add extra five years to someone's life.

Want a long and healthy life? Don't just plod, but go for short stints of intense exercise daily, says a new study.
Researchers in Denmark have found that intense workouts for shorter periods daily are better for the heart and could add up to an extra five years to someone's life, the latest edition of the 'Hypertension' journal reported.
The Danish study by Bispebjerg University Hospital adds to evidence that moderate exertion, while clearly beneficial, might not be all that is needed to give the best level of protection against cardio vascular disease.
The researchers who monitored the health of 5,000 Danish people in Copenhagen, who cycled regularly for 20 years, found that most benefit was gained from pedalling intensively for short periods.
Men who said they rode fast could expect to live 5.3 years longer than those who said they rode slowly, while for such women the figure was 3.9 years, the findings revealed.
