Here’s more good news: Recent research published in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise shows an encouraging link between endurance training and sitting-induced health problems. It turns out, prolonged sitting reduces blood flow in your legs. Over time, this can result in stiffer blood vessels and hardened, narrower arteries, which can eventually lead to heart disease. According to new research in the journal Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, regular endurance training may counteract the harmful effects of sitting for long periods of time. read more > science says: endurance exercise helps counteract sitting “It is possible that the more people participate in light activity, the more engaged they are overall which is associated with better mood,” he explains.

In other words, if the participants were sitting for six or more hours per day and were getting less than 150 minutes a week of exercise, they were at. “But if you’re physically inactive and fatigued, being just a bit more active will help,” says O’Connor, co-director of the University of Georgia exercise psychology laboratory, in. “Getting 1 hour of exercise in the middle of the day is better than not doing anything, but that still leaves 7 hours of sitting during the workday,” says David Dunstan, PhD, who heads the. And a study published in January found that simply moving instead of sitting for 30 minutes each day could reduce early death risk by 17%.

If you do opt for a more vigorous workout, some research. As Kevin Hall, a senior investigator at the US National Institutes of Health tells Vox in the video above: “We need to rebrand exercise. Exercise isn’t a weight-loss tool per se; it’s excellent for health, it’s probably the best single thing that you can do other than stopping smoking to improve your health, but don’t look at it as a weight-loss tool.”. These activities that can help promote bone growth and bone strength and reduce the risk of fall-related injuries and fractures. Regular physical activity helps with arthritis and other rheumatic conditions affecting the joints.

Doing 150 minutes a week of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity, if able, plus muscle-strengthening activity. The plank exercise is a ridiculously simple yet amazingly beneficial endurance exercise that can help to strengthen and tone the core muscles of the abdomen, hips and back. With origins in yoga, planking is easy to do and can be adapted to provide benefits to even the most physically fit among us.

Not surprisingly, sitting has some of its worst effects on muscles, just as, inversely, exercise exerts some of its best effects via muscles.

There are still many studies and debates on optimizing sitting posture.

Implicit in this hypothesis is that replacing sitting time with physical activity will be associated with lower disease risk; however, this has not been experimentally evaluated.

It is important to remember that these mild exercises are not an alternative to the aerobic exercise that we encourage in this book; these small breaks are a separate life-saving effort to reduce the ill-effects of prolonged sitting.

However, more well-designed studies and interventions need to confirm the association between sitting and physical functions and whether standing more improes functional abilities.

Similarly, some, but not all studies of patients with CKD randomized to PRT with or without added endurance training have shown significant improvements in muscle strength, 6-minute walk distance, stair climb performance, sit-to-stand transitions, self-reported physical function, and quality of life.

  • Well that used to be me. I was in the sport of bicycle racing for over 25 years, and for a while I was averaging over 15,000 miles per year of bike riding. And not unusual for my heart rate to be in the 40s. I stopped racing, and long distance training rides, over 10 years ago, and am now in my late 50s. Now I do just short rides with HIIT. My normal HR is still in the 50s. Hopefully not keeling over anytime soon.

  • My mom developed bradycardia, she was an athletic athlete, she was used to endurance training, then bcs some reasons she stopped training, some time later she was diagnosed with bradycardia and she used pace makers since 1995, 2 times changed since

  • Guys I recovered from Ocd, just be courageous it is very important, and never do compulsions ur brain tells to do don’t listen to it, take deep breath and do other work, never ever think of it again, if ur compulsion reason is high then think and do compulsion of not doing compulsion it helps to some extent, but don’t ever try to do compulsions if u dont do compulsions u can recover easily, have courage and sit in sunshine for 15-30 mins(for serotonin) and read books, I read bhagavatgita it helped me a lot do read it,u will get some courage(u can find it online ) in that god says to fight and gives u courage to fight and says many more things about mind,
    keep ur self busy don’t think too much and do the work more and also exercise and don’t respond to your thoughts

  • has anybody have ocd affecting his health such as stomach pain, uncontrolled nervous sysytem movement, muscle tension and hear/beard loss?

  • Mine is if I don’t tap something a certain amount of Time or do something multiple times or go back to something and make sure it’s right my brain has a thought that over the years has became a giant thought of everything bad that could happen and it also annoys very much, kinda hard to explain. and yes when this guy said people with ocd have other things like anxiety or depression is true. Mine started in second grade and just got worse from there my parents always thought I would outgrow it but I never did. It basically effects everything you do in life.

  • When I used to run and bike when I was 13-17. I actually lost my gallbladder. I didn’t eat properly, that was a huge factor. But, I would bike to cross country practice. Run over 5 miles. Bike home. 10 Miles each way. Then, on the off season. I’d bike literally all the time. I did rides from 50 miles to 185 miles.

    I thought I was doing myself real good by doing what I did. But, I’m down a gallbladder due to all the excessive working out.

  • I have read the book, i feel tht this is for the competive athlete who is training more than 1 hr per day without stop, working out beyond the comfortable zone.. I do train every day but only doing endurance exercise without stopping for maximum 30 mins while the remaining 30 minutes is within my comfortable pace…

  • So I walk daily and sometimes I tend to walk for 1 to 2 hours in a stretch because it’s not that hard. Could this be a problem for the heart?

  • Thanks so much Dr. Berg for covering such a hardly touched topic. Please make more videos on heart failure, heart enlargement, heart valve prolapse, medications, exercises for preventing and managing heart diseases.

  • I was running 5 miles a day and my heart rate was in the low 40s. I started to feel my heart skipping when relaxing. I have cut back and my rate is up to the low 50s. Feeling much better too.

  • If you can survive the tsk sounds, huffs, long pauses, clanking the podium, uuuhs and ummmms, then there is some interesting info here.

  • And now this video comes out? I ran 4 hours nonstop yesterday just for a training run for a 45 mile ultramarathon coming up in September. At 44 years old, should I stop now? Nope! Everybody’s gotta die sometime, might as well be running!

  • its not about confusion weather door is locked or not…this diseases is about knowing that door is locked the patient keep opening n closing and doing it again and again until it feels right, or until you do it for a specific number of times to tell mind that now that anxiety will not occur.

  • I lift weights 2 times a week and walk everyday, and sprint occasionally once mabye 2 times on my walks. Yes overdoing it will lead to depression, eating more and lack of sleep terrible days, irritable cranky. Its when I train when I think I am recovered from weights, the tempation to go back is hard sometimes. I am in my 30’s now and 2 days off from the gym in essential. Running a few miles is good for you Mercola talks about and actually says it improves your life. But the marathon runners 26 miles and 12 and so on terrible. Everyone is different in recovery times. The older you get you need to allow for more recovery. And I think the fitter you are and healthier faster recovery.

  • You are not being realistic.
    All athletes know the body rebuilds itself during rest.
    Nobody that is trained that has any common sense pushes day after day!
    Also why do you target endurance athletes?
    Look at muscle builders!
    Many die from liver failure because of the high protein diet and protein supplements.
    You can overdo anything. Sumo wrestlers over eat to put on weight, knowing there life expectancy is only about 30 years.
    No type of exercise is harmful unless done in excess.
    In excess everything is harmful!!!

  • Their is a lot of people that has OCD but wont speak up because we’re too afraid of how society will look down at US. Marking us think were crazy.

  • I hope this is not the case here but some keto promoters claim that one can do keto, eat as many calories as they want, and they don’t need to exercise… This is wrong, because the liver and the cells have a limited absorbtion capabilities and number of receptors for say cholesterol… Too much calories even from fat can lead to atherosclerosis, early aging fatty liver and such as the liver will downregulate the receptors for protein carrier of cholesterol… So, keto diet still requires calorie restriction and exercise, especially among those at risk for cancers, glioblastoma especially…

  • This is a great video. He explains it so well. This ocd is so hard to live with, mine stems from a traumatic experience and I have so many intrusive thoughts and fears. God I hope everyone heals from this suffering.

  • Hi Dr, Berg, first of all thank you so much for all the videos you make daily. They are very informative! I have a question for you, so I work out at the gym 3 days for example day 1 I do chest + triceps..day 2 back + biceps…day 3 shoulder + legs then I take a day off then work out again 3 days same routine for 1 hour a day. Would this harm my heart? I would really appreciate if you could please help me.

  • Hi Dr Erick Berg
    One of your last month video, you mentioned that we can have salad during our fasted period. You said that salad wouldn’t break the fast. Will you kindly confirm please doc.

  • How much do you think this has something to do with the amount of sugar that most endurance athletes consume to excess? I’d be interested to see the differences between low carb and high carb endurance athletes. Take a look at the junk food spread at any ultramarathon aid station and tell me that ingesting ungodly amounts of junk food during these events doesn’t have a compounding affect on heart health.

  • HIIT burns burns muscle glycogen which keto people have very little. HIIT will cause elevated liver glucose output and for people who were on keto long, that blood sugar can go very high because people (about 70%) on keto long term have very low glucose tolerance. Don’t believe, wear continuous glucose monitor and do a HIIt workout for 45-60 minutes. Will cause high blood sugar.

  • I 1st noticed OCD symptoms after I was raped at age 7 and have lived with the symptoms ever since then. I have worked all my life to balance my life well with treatment and dealing with my quirks. Lately, it’s been out of hand. i just made a video about it on my new You Tube channel and I welcome ALL to come and take a look and feel free to comment, like and subscribe if you care to. I bid you all Peace. I make my videos to show people that they are NOT alone.

  • i used to workout 5 days a week until my doctor told me to make EKG and he told me that i have LBBB “left bundle branch block”and i don’t know this is from exercise or born with it he do an eco and found that i have enlarged heart and told me to stop exercise and do only walking, since that i stopped and gained weight back again and want to exercise again but i’m afraid to do so, still dont know the wright decision.

  • One problem with this theory is that when endurance athletes have enlarged hearts, discovered through medical procedures or autopsy, the condition is automatically blamed on to much exercise. They are never tested for steroid use. Anabolic steroids enlarge the heart in a pathological manner. When athletes die of heart attacks, they are not tested for steroid use. Personally, I believe the pathological enlargement of the heart is mostly due to steroid use. Exercise does enlarge the heart, but not in a pathological manner.

  • I’m not even sure why athleticism is considered “healthy”. I think we just associate it with being healthy, because we see so many clearly unhealthy people who are particularly unathletic, but that doesn’t mean going to the opposite end of the spectrum is healthy.

  • What a lot of people don’t know is that according to the British Heart Foundation, HA/SCA are THE BIGGEST killers in people over 40, especially in men.

    For some reason, fit men have Sudden Cardiac Arrest as you have probably seen / heard during the various marathons that take place around the world…

  • When i was at my late teens, i did a lot of running and had pulse rate of 42. When i did cardio test at my school, it shows weird signs rhythm from my heart. The dr claim that i was too thin so it shows that.. LOL.. Now i know why. Now, after 30 years later, i am slightly overweight and didn’t run much due to the invention of internet..LOL.. but i have other issues to deal with.

  • Great timing in my 50s and just diagnosed with sinus bradycardia (low heart beat of 54) and left ventricular hypertrophy I’ve put it down to years of intense spin classes which this video confirms. No more spin for me just light 5km jogging, weights and some HIIT! Thanks Dr Berg.

  • I love how he offers this theory but offers no information as to what would be a healthy amount of endurance exercises. Sounds like a fat man’s excuse to be lazy. Imma go listen to goggins

  • Sir, thanks for sharing this valuable piece of information. I am suffering by this monster last few years. I am not getting a good therapist in India. I know few of them who just love money rather than curring the patients. How to get in touch with you? Please help.

  • Everything in moderation. Too much exercise is bad. Jogging 20 minutes a day is fine but I wouldn’t do it for more than 30 minutes. The other thing I noticed is too much exercise can ruin your libido.

  • of course everything is subjective and GENETICS. Ive done over a hundred marathons, approaching 50 with no issues excluding several 90kms. Thats nothing, i knows guys who lived close to hundred years and clocking more than 40 time 90 km races and run races as long as 1500kms, YES 1500KMs. Il take my chance running than follow your advice here or from books. Im doing this for 30 years with no glitches. Heres some guys to study Dr Berg and to make that book reconsider: Wally Hayward, Kenny Craig, Clive Crawley, Bruce Fordyce, Yiannis Kiouros, Allan Robb etc. This knowledge DOESNT apply to everyone.

  • You can now get proper relief from OCD by using pure and effective medicines along with the panchkarma from Chandigarh Ayurved Centre. Thanks CAC.

  • In The Name of Allah, The Entirely Merciful, The Especially Merciful,
    ( 41.36 ) And if there comes to you from Satan an evil suggestion, then seek refuge in Allah. Indeed, He is the Hearing, the Knowing.
    The Quran. Surat Fussilat

    I have obsessive compulsive, but, Alhamdulillah, I know where the whispers come from, and seeking refuge in God always makes me feel at ease.

    Thank you, Dr. Sarosh, you’re a very modest and humorous psychologist.

  • Every cardiologist these days knows that endurance exercise at 85% has lifesaving benefits… That’s why heart stress tests are done on patients making them do resistance exercise at 85% of their capabilities to see if there is anything wrong with their vascular system… If someone already has a blockage in the arteries he won’t be able to do endurance exercise…

  • I am an former Olympic Track Athlete and still training very intense everyday and I’m 49 y o now and according to my Cardiologist and other Dr, my heart, internal organ, health, metabolic are as young as someone in age 32 y o. So I think you are wrong in this Dr Eric.

  • Love the info to the masses doc. Every doctor should be more concerned with humankind towards growing to understand the human body and to share their unbiased findings as you do.

  • So is this the reason that “base” training actually does anything? (I’m dubious that riding slowly for long periods has a real benefit).

  • I used to be a bodybuilder when I was a man….
    Yes I discovered aged 50 that I am actually transgender woman
    I typically trained very heavy and for many years
    So I’ll get to the point!
    I discovered Eric Berg around 5 years ago and I lost 75 lbs and used every trick in the book and followed the Keto diet
    I uaed to eat 7 meals a day and my life was overtaken by food and training.
    Since then I eat two meals a day and I feel more energy than ever before and I am free ��
    It was an absolute revolution but all the videos I seen and my professional knowledge and experience changed my perseption of food.
    The insulin and cortisol phenomenon was the biggest reasons why I wanted to do it.
    I now train very moderate
    Basically when your diet is correct you actually don’t need to train hard it’s that simple!
    I eat a lot of phytoestrogens foods to promote my feminine side and many people can’t believe I have never taken hormones.
    It’s a Shame I can’t upload a photo of before and after
    But I swear so much can be achieved naturally.
    Thank you again Dr Eric Berg for your invaluable teachings!!

  • High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is the way to go. I do about twelve minutes a day. The key is to short bursts and then sit down and wait until you heartbeat returns to normal. Then do it again. Do this five or six times and you’re done.
    You will know your heart is getting stronger by the diminishing time it takes your heart to return to normal heartbeat.
    For example, when I started this it took almost six minutes for my heart to get back to normal after only 2 minutes of intense elliptical exercise. I am now at 4 minutes of rest.
    Dr. Berg didn’t mention this, but this also strengthens your lungs.

  • I made this funny video to teach people about OCD I believe everyone has a form of it…
    https://www.youtube.com/watchv=Z2YDHZIhPYE&list=PLDgg2OeZxHHssv63DO9BiX6TnC1cbmXRA

  • Excuses because you don’t want to train or eat cruelty free.
    Just do your aerobic, your anaerobic hard enough, eat healthy and vegan and you’ll be perfect.

  • Endurance athletes typically follow a diet high in carbohydrates, often high glycemic. I wonder how much the resulting oxidative stress and inflammation plays a role in these heart attacks in seemingly healthy and middle aged athletes.

  • Hello Dr. Berg, can you please make a video on hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (obstructive)?
    My husband was diagnosed this and I’m looking for a way to avoid betablockers.
    He has overweight and as he loves meat I suggested the ketogenic diet.
    But I can only read the plant based diet is good for the heart. If one would know the reason for this illness to start, then maybe some food can be avoided or be added.
    Thank you for your efforts in advance and warm greetings from Germany.

  • Not only is it bad for your heart, exercise can also causes knee damage, ankle damage, back damage, shoulder damage, myoplasia syndrome, chronic fatigue, cartilage damage, tendon damage and muscle damage. Not to mention, if you exercise outside, you significantly increase your risk of getting assaulted, murdered or raped. You need to determine how much risk you want to take. and for many os us, exercise is not worth it.

  • Interesting video. For a very helpful narration on when ERP will fail at mitigating OCD and how Response Prevention can still succeed please click on the attached hyperlink.

  • I always knew that these sport fanatics were doing more harm then good to themselves. I try to keep active. I ride a bicycle to work, take long walks when I can and swim a lot whenever I’m on vacation or in the local lake in the summer time. I’m almost 50 and eat healthy ( this channel is a great help for knowing what to eat or not ). I never push myself to hard and my only objective is to keep my body weight and flexibility. When I see people in their 40s and 50s doing extreme workouts all I can do is a face palm.��‍♂️

  • Guys don’t give up please, it all starting like 2 months ago with an random thoughts and it was hell, the anxiety was hell i had thoughts about becoming an serial killer or schizoprenic or even being possesed or having epilepsy. I didn’t knew what was wrong with me i was for sure thinking that i was going insane. Until i did my research and i realized that i had pure O. After that i’ve realized that i don’t need to worry about the thoughts anymore and to look at them like something that is not a part of me but an random thing the brain trows at me. Now my anxiety have calmed down drastically but i still have the compulsions like doubting my thoughts, ruminating, trying to explain eveything or even characterized myself with other people that are serial killers or having those illines (this is gone now btw), i realized that i’m rational and i don’t need to fear my thoughts anymore. Now the thing i need to do is to remove the compulsions and the best thing i do to make them go away are distractions, i started to learn photoshop and learning another language. If your fighting this i know what you are going through i know all the sweating the thoughts racing in your mind the doubt of your sanity but it can be done, you can get rid of this devil you just need to realized that your thoughts are not part of you, look at them like clouds up in the sky not part of you, because in your soul you know that you are fine and you are rational and would never do anything wrong or hurt or abuse anyone. And for the compulsions try and find an hobby, get out with friends, play some video games who cares if it hurts if that thing makes you happy do it because you know it will make you feel better. Btw sorry for any triggers in this comment. Live your life and be gratefull for the things you got because remember it could’ve been much worst.

  • Ohh for fucks sake it’s really too much. Too little or too much, don’t eat that, eat this. One minute it’s ok the next it’s not. It’s just too hard.

  • I’m tired of people saying It’s my OCD like a badge of honour.
    When you have true OCD and I’m not talking about being neat and tidy, and liking the same colors and things straight.
    I’m talking about throwing away brand new items because you think someone may have touched it.
    I’m talking about leaving work because you need to take a shower because you think someone may have touched you.
    I’m talking about not being able to touch your own children because you just can’t.
    I’m talking about never telling anyone what you think because you know your crazy so what will they think.
    Imagine telling an employer I have to go home and take a shower because I think someone may have touched me, not know they touched you only think they touched you. How understanding will your employer be????
    NO people that say they have OCD DO not have OCD otherwise you wouldn’t be bragging about it.
    How many people say it’s just my schizophrenia? no one because if you have schizophrenia the last thing you want is anyone knowing it.
    So why are people so happy to tell you “its just my OCD”
    I have suffered now for 42 years and it just gets worse with every breath I take.
    I do work and it’s getting harder every day to hide it
    People at work no something isn’t right but there not quite sure what.
    I listen to a woman at work bragging about her OCD and how she likes everything in capitals on a report she has to do. NO this woman does not have OCD.

  • When I was an athlete in a rowing team, I trained 6-8 times a week. We would regularly do a 2000 metre row at max power in the fastest time possible. After doing the “2k test” I would feel like I had a hangover for at least 24 hours. I also went to a doctor about the heart beats thing (palpitations) and she said it was normal in athletes.

  • I have OCD and feel this fear that I have no idea what it is, it’s very strange and I have it and it has destroyed my life, I’m on fluvoxamine right now just started hope it works.

  • As an OCD suffer i must say that OCD is not a joke guys. This is somthing you will never want to wish on someone not even your worse enemy. Their is Help out here speak up and ask for Help.

  • let’s say I exercise 30min everyday doing compound exercises and waiting until my heart rate goes back to normal would I still have this problem long term

  • Please do not listen to the other commenters on this video.

    The video may be long, but he explains OCD in a way that can be understood by a child. I suggest that you watch the entire video, and pay attention.

    Thank you for this video. The quote at the end of the video by the monk is very true.

  • Important message

    OCD occur die to low sereton horome n d body.. Increase by going 2 sunlight and taking food rich n sereton horome.. Get rid of it.. Pray 2 God

  • I worked out with someone who was a marathon runner, she is in her late fifties and has had to have to hip replacements, and can no longer run, but she is still killing it in the gym doing crossfit routines!

  • I must say that 2-3 years ago someone I knew in high school experienced sudden death syndrome. He was an olympic cross-country skier. He died while doing what he loved the most. It’s an odd paradox when you learn that you can actually die from being too conditioned. Bummer.

  • Thanks!! I have had issues with PVC off and on for years…..had a cardiologist tell me I had an athlete’s heart but didn’t know what that meant! I still workout 6-7 days a week….I may need to back off.

  • I guess that’s the upper limit of non interval trainings:p… Moderation good, too much bad. I don’t think that applies to me right now though lol. I’ve volunteered to help a marathon but never ran one. They gave me a gym bag and I think it might mislead some people to think I ran marathon. I think I might’ve had this problem when I was in high school often running to school because I was late and had PE. I’ve felt some palpitations or something before.

  • I love this guys attitude-very in charge, rebellious against the status quo of knuckle head/should be sued for malpractice psychiatric practitioners. I have had ocd for a long time & have had a lot of bad advice.

  • In old England, the Victorians truly believed that we humans were allocated a set number of heartbeats in our lifetime and that if we exercised, we’d use up our beats more quickly and die younger!
