This is an exciting study for those who are aging.
That a single boost of exercise helps physical stamina but also feel good hormones and cognitive functions.
This study was carried out by the University of Iowa.
Now they are to look at a larger pool of people and extend the study over 5 years.
I do think walking should have been the chosen exercise – free, available to everyone, wheelchair bound as well and needing no special equipment but as this study was conducted in America there may not be the same good walking facilities as in the UK.
