But more interestingly. The research shows that people who exercise regularly are biologically, 9 whole years younger than the rest of the couch dwelling nation. (Which by the way includes us.)
By exercise we’re not talking a light stroll to the Tesco garage to stock up on Fruit n Nut. No ho ho! The men with beards and pointy glasses say the only type of exercise that will really make a difference is of the sweat inducing kind. Think long runs uphill in the snow. Jogging up steps doing air punches. 500 chin ups followed by a 3 mile icy cold swim. In other words, Rocky in a ‘get quick fit’ montage.
That’ll be no to the extra peshwari naan then. And yes to more than 3 hours of strenuous exercise a week. Anything less than that say the experts is simply a waste. So haul yourself off the couch, put on a naff old tracksuit and start limbering up for aerobics on the lawn. It could postpone death. And no, we don’t care if it’s raining.
