FitLinks: 30 Minutes of Exercise May Be As Good As 1 Hour

  • Print Friendly and PDFPrint

While the expression “less is more” seems to apply to everything but exercise, August saw a slew of articles come out discussing whether exercising for longer periods of time is actually more beneficial to you than simply making sure you just exercise 30 minutes each day.

We all know how important fitness and nutrition is, but recent news has shown how much it impacts our bodies onward into old age, as well as how much it can shape kids during their elemental years, so we’ve included some interesting articles on both. Additionally, since we just posted an article with exercises for early morning workouts, we found some great instructional videos that will help you if you plan to try them out!

      Hello Marc,
      I read the article about During Exercise, Body Needs Water, But Also Sodium, Potassium. So eating a banana pre workout would be the solution + drinking water while exercising, wouldn’t like the drink a supplement.
      Thank you.

      Hi Marc,

      Great site with lots of good info. I see a lot of pics of you looking ripped and you mention your LBM and Weight etc. So I can compare and aim for myself I was just wondering what height you are?

      I am 6ft so I dont know what if your stats of LBM (155) and weight (167) that I read from one of your posts would be an equivalent target for me at my height?

        @David – My height is 5’11”. My guess is an LBM of around 145-155lb should be achievable for most men around 6 feet. If you have more than that, well then you’ve got good genetics and you are probably working pretty hard in the gym.
