Fast walking is beneficial to the health of older women

There are many forms of exercise, and “fast walking” is one of them.

According to the latest issue of the American Medical Association Quarterly, “fast walking” is good for the health of older women.

  The American Medical Association Quarterly published a research report published by the Harvard School of Public Health recently, stating that middle-aged and older women participate in sports, but as long as 30 minutes a day, the probability of stroke can be reduced by 30%, the effect of stroke prevention and jogging, and tennis.The more intense fast-paced exercise such as cycling is the same.

  From 1968 to 1994, experts at the Harvard School of Public Health conducted a long-term follow-up study of the relationship between women’s sports and physiology, targeting 72,488 women between the ages of 40 and 65.

  According to the research report, middle-aged and elderly women walk for 30 minutes every day, which has good effects in preventing diabetes, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, stroke and certain cancers.

Women who do not have exercise habits can achieve good results in physical fitness as long as they walk 30 minutes a day from now on.

And if middle-aged and older women walk 45 minutes to an hour a day, the probability of a stroke can be further reduced by 40%.
