The researchers studied the early effects on the body’s blood vessels when someone transitions from high daily physical activity — 10,000 or more steps per day — to low daily physical activity, less than 5,000 steps per day.

It was found that with reduction in daily physical activity even for just a few days puts people at risk of affected by decrease in the functioning of inner lining of blood vessels – even in case of young people.

The vascular dysfunction induced by five days of inactivity requires more than one day of returning to physical activity and taking at least 10,000 steps a day to improve.

The research appeared in the Journal of Applied Physiology.
