    I work out 1 hour 5 days a week. If time aloud I would increase that by 30 minutes.

    I couldn't imagine working out less.

    BTW I didn't read the article

    You are diesel so it is OK.

    Its more about running but in the study "Those who ran at a fast pace more than four hours a week for more than three days a week had about the same risk of dying during the study’s 12-year follow up as those who were sedentary and hardly exercised at all" those you ran moderately did the best. I do hard cardio for an hour a day right now. I lift for about an hour and half on average 5 days a week, and i do yoga if you count that. I am still too embarrassed to join you in the PR thread

    Yeah that's right you're a runner.. Maybe scale it back a little? But tbh take these studies with a grain of salt and do what your body tells you.

    We have to start out somewhere.. I was a weak little guy before I started

    when judging longevity genetics also play huge in the equation. you always hear stories such as " my grand pa smoked 3 packs a day and lived to be 103." so in general i think being healthy as well as lucky has more to do with things than the style of exercise you do.

    Man I used to run 5 to 6 days a week. I got super bad shin splints that KO'd me for like 6 weeks. I still lift, but now I only run 3 days a week.

    How do you get shin splints & how do you get rid of them?

    Years ago I use to run 5 days a week and after about 3 weeks my shins hurt so bad I could barely walk

    well, you get them from the impact of running outside. As far as I know you can only get rid of them by waiting. You can prevent them by having good running shoes (most important thing) and inserts if you have flat feet. I think strong calves help too. Also much better to run on a track over blacktop etc. eventually, i think your body builds a tolerance for the impact and you don't get them- shoes are definitely the most important thing though. they actually have stores that analysis how you run to suggest what type of running shoe you should use.

    I don't want you to think I'm am expert on shin splints or anything because I'm not lol. As far as I know, I got them from running to much on an indoor track. I also had really cheap running shoes with no padding at the time. When I got them, it would feel better in like a week but then I would go and run again and it would hurt worse than ever. Finally, one of my family's friends whose a doctor said that I needed to not run at all for awhile to make sure it heals. So as far as I know only time heels it...much like a sprain.

    That pain though.... just walking up the stairs killed me.

    To me this makes intuitive sense. I've always thought those who run marathons are pushing themselves to hard. There's a reason that people die after running them. That said, I'm certainly on the side that needs to work out more, not less.

Not that I have a 6 pack or anything, but just sayin, u know

    So I don't know, guess this is cardio specific, but I'd def disagree with lifting 7/wk being bad

    The article talks about how people who run 4 times or more a week have the same death expectancy of someone who does little to no cardio, but the article fails to bring anything up about the quality of life those individuals may have. Without doing any scientific research, I am comfortable in making a claim that the overall quality of life of someone who runs more than 4 times a week is better than people who do little to no cardio.

    I've been told this from so many people that the running and excess of heavy weights will come back on you.... My boss is almost 60 and he ran every morning before work for like 30 years. His knees are shot.
