First Segment: Trending Topics
First Topic (04:47 – 12:00): Young people need intense exercise…
Two studies c onfirm the importance of getting fit regardless of age! For teens,new UK research has found that moderate exercise may not be enough for reducing their risk of heart disease later in life. The recommendation is 60 minutes of “vigorous” physical activity every day – and it’s safe to say that most of them aren’t getting this amount! Janet (who has raised active teens) and Emily (who will be!) talk about the necessity of good, long-lasting exercise practices.
Second Topic (12:00 – 20:37): …and so does an older heart!
If you spent your teenage years slacking off, there’s some good news:getting in shape now may head off that decline and help restore your aging heart! The heart can get younger even between the ages of 45 and 64, and higher intensity exercise can seriously do a lot more for your cardiovascular health. Janet and Emily discuss these new findings, and how the studies may have changed how they view exercise!
