The average workout at www.BekahFit.com is about 30 minutes. This article explains why intensity is better and more effective than duration.
If exercise is good for losing weight, more must be better, right? Not according to new research carried out at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark.
Researchers divided 60 overweight men into two groups. Both groups exercised at a moderate pace by either running or cycling. The only difference was the amount of time they exercised. One group exercised at a moderate intensity for 30 minutes a day while the other group worked out for a full hour. During the study researchers followed their body weights closely. At the end of the 13 weeks study, the group who worked out for 60 minutes a day lost an average of 6 pounds. Surprisingly, the group that only sweated 30 minutes a day lost more weight. On average, they lost 8 pounds.
