New Study: A 30 Minute Walk A Day Is Nonsense? – Doctor Reacts
Do we really need to take 10, 000 steps a day to improve our health? According to many experts this is just some made-up number that really was a marketing accident rather than being based on science. Dr. Nick Zyrowski breaks down the facts whether or not this 10, 000 step strategy is even useful to you in this video, “New Study: A 30 Minute Walk A Day Is Nonsense? – Doctor Reacts.”
According to an article that he shares in this video, fitness tracking devices often recommend ten thousand steps a day but the goal of taking ten thousand steps which many of us believe is rooted in science in fact rests on coincidence and sticky history rather than research.
Popularizing the 10,000 Steps Strategy
Dr. Lee, a Professor of Epidemiology at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and an expert on Step Counts and Health, the 10, 000 steps target became popular in Japan in the 1960s. A clock maker hoping to capitalize on interest in fitness after the 1964 Tokyo Olympic Games mass produced a pedometer with a name that when written in Japanese letters resembled a walking man. It also translated as 10,000-step meters creating a walking aim that through the decades somehow became embedded in our global consciousness and fitness trackers.
Do We Really Need 10,000 Steps?
However, today’s best science suggests that we don’t need to take 10,000 steps a day, which is about five miles for the sake of our health or longevity.
When we look at steps in general, we do have to realize that part of the benefit that comes from it is getting our heart rate up. The whole point is that you actually do a brisk walk and you get your heart rate up and you get moving. Remember that when we think of steps in general you have to get your heart rate up in order to actually get a lot of the major benefits from it. So we don’t want to just focus on the bare minimum either.
Getting your exercise is wildly important for your overall health, your brain health and longevity.
Your exercise is essential to you just like vitamins, good healthy food, fresh air and water.
Tune in to this video as Dr. Nick Zyrowski delves in deeper as to what the studies have to say about the ten thousand steps a day strategy.
