New Study: Just 11 Minutes Of Exercise A Day Can Help You Live Longer

If life is too crazy to find time for a hardcore workout 60 or 90 minutes every day, there’s no need to panic.

Just 11 minutes of exercise a day can help you live longer. Yes, 11.

That’s according to a new study from the Norwegian School of Sports Medicine.

Researchers say “moderate” exercise for those 11 minutes could include anything from a brisk walk to mowing the lawn. Coincidentally, I can do about 24 beer-can curls in 11 minutes.

It is important to note: The study did show that people who worked out 35 minutes a day did see the biggest health benefits, but at least 11 minutes a day did prove to be good as well.
