Sitting a lot can waste your exercise effort

If you've already used to sit all day, both at work and at home, then someone is likely difficult to change the habit. However, this study may help motivate you, especially the men.

Recent research conducted Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said, any man who would sit mostly at risk of becoming obese, do not care if they are actively engaged in physical activity with tacfit at

Researchers confirmed this by observing the 4,486 men and 1,845 women aged 20-79 years, who spend their time sitting, either while in office, school and home.

They asked each respondent to report the frequency and duration of the 11 types of physical activities, including walking, running and cycling.

Nearly half of men admitted to three-quarters of a day they spent sitting, while women who admitted having a habit of sitting for only around 13 percent.

"Even if the woman also used to sit a long time, but still, the level of obesity is still under the man," said the researcher, Carolyn E Barlow reported the Washington Post.

From the results of waist circumference and body fat percentage is certain that whatever the outcome, if they are more sedentary during the day, it is their tendency to be obese are also greater.

"No matter how good fitness level respondents, if they are more sedentary, they tend to be overweight," concluded Barlow.

Even during these risk factors often associated with obesity such as cholesterol and glucose also has nothing to do with prolonged sitting. It is considered quite shocking.

The study is similar to research the University Health Network in Toronto who said someone is still at risk of developing diabetes, heart disease and cancer as most sit despite diligent exercise as well.

Conversely, people who exercise can not offset the perceived risk of the body from sitting too long. "Yet still doing physical activity, at least to reduce the time you sit down because it also lowers the risk of diabetes and his friends had. No matter despite only performed for a moment," added Barlow.
