Do you get enough exercise at work?

People with physically demanding jobs often think that exercise recommendations don’t apply to them. However, a study reported in the Archives of Internal Medicine suggests otherwise.

The study showed having a physically demanding job did not offer protection against heart disease, but engaging in two hours of leisure-time activity each week did. The Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommend 2 hours and 30 minutes of moderate-intensity activity (i.e., brisk walk) or 1 hour and 15 minutes of vigorous-intensity activity (i.e., jogging) each week. A combination of moderate and vigorous activity is fine as well.
