Short, Easy — Not Strenuous — Jogging Gives Biggest Survival Gain

Even just a little jogging done at a very easy pace goes a long way towards increasing longevity, according to a new analysis by Danish researchers. The results also suggest there is a limit to the benefit and that too much running — done more frequently, for longer periods, or at a greater intensity — was not associated with any additional mortality benefits compared with sedentary non-runners. — Dose of Jogging and Long-Term Mortality, The Copenhagen City Heart Study, J Am Coll Cardiol. 2015;65(5):411-419. doi:10.1016/j.jacc.2014.11.023
