The results showed that those who live in a better financial situation tend to move more and at a higher intensity, which is also due to the fact that they often have more flexible working hours, more opportunities, it's also light that they're the ones who spend more time working on their jobs because they work more often in the office, at desk, in front of the desk. Kerem Shuval and Quing Li, the American Cancer Society, and Kelley Pettee Gabriel from the University of Texas and Rusty Tchernis from the University of Georgia with the aid of 5,206 adults in the United States in 2003. The study found that those earning less than $ 20,000 a year were spending 4.6 more minutes with intensive movement on those earning $ 75,000 a year or more. At the same time, higher incomes spent 9.3 minutes less daily with light intensity exercise and 11.8 minutes more with a seat, and, overall, 1.6 times daily, and 1.9 times more daily in one week, the researchers noted on the basis of the above that the recommended amount of exercise can be reduced up to 2-3 days a weekso anyone who only has time for the weekend doesn't have to worry about it, but be sure to step up your exercise gradually to avoid injury.You may also be interested in these articles:
