150 Minutes Per Week

"The study found that 150 minutes of vigorous physical activity per week added two to three years to the lives of the men during the 13-year study."
-- The University of Western Australia, emphasis added
Found via Reddit. 150 minutes per week is roughly around 21.43 minutes per day. Before that, what is vigorous physical activity? According to World Health Organization (WHO), any high intensity activity that increases heart rate is considered vigorously. Examples are running, brisk walking, fast cycling, aerobics, and others.

It seems daily walking of 10,000 steps (which I still fail to do so) merely enough for fitness or weight loss but not enough to extend your life expectancy. Is time to include the Scientific 7-Minutes Workout in my daily as I don't suffered any foot pains anymore.
