Come on! you know exercise is already good for you right? This should come as no shocker. If you want to reduce your light-speed into old age, try doing some cardio or yoga for goodness sake.

exerciseNew research by Canadian sports medicine physician Mark Tarnopolsky, MD, PhD, suggests that a person can slow the speed at which they age by exercising regularly.

He discussed how regular exercise not only improves the quality of life but can also extend a person’s lifespan by up to five years. Additionally, his research suggests that older adults receive the most benefits when combining endurance exercise with resistance exercise.

So, go out and grab a dumb bell, climb the steady incline of a treadmill or feel irritated by your recumbent position of choice. You owe it to yourself to be fit, relaxed and young.

Tarnopolsky is a professor and division head of Neuromuscular and Neurometabolic Disorders in the Department of Pediatrics at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario.

His clinical research focuses predominately on therapies for mitochondrial cytopathies; however, his group is also involved in clinical trials in Duchenne muscular dystrophy, Friedreich's ataxia and Pompe disease.

The study was presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM) in New Orleans, US.
