How much should the average person exercise each day in order to stay healthy? 60 minutes right? I found three articles that argue different prognosis's. The first article from the Hear t Health Center talks about how assuming people can exercise for an hour is a joke and that a simple 20 minutes will do the trick. You may not be shedding pounds left and right but you will be doing your cardiovascular health a huge favor. The second article from ABC news argues a similar time although it gives profound results. ABC tested 400,000 study participants in a 12 year span and found that if you work out just 15 MINUTES A DAY you can increase your life expectancy by three years...how they found this statistic with all the other factors that play into health , I have no idea, but for the sake of my argument I'll take it. Lastly, my third link by Cardiff University Sports says at least 30 minutes a day is enough to maintain cardiovascular health. Cardiff's points out that working out doesn't have to mean bench pressing or even going for a 30 minute run...it can be something as simple as washing your car, or gardening. Point being, no one truly agrees with an exact time that should be allotted to exercising every day, but all the articles clearly say you should exercise at least 15 per day and the more time you allot, the higher your cardiovascular health will be in turn...DUH. These articles are trustworthy because they all studied heart patients and are from valid sources who have done studies over the years or took data from places who have. A couple possible fallacies this topic can fall under are the bandwagon and not-me fallacy. It is easy to compare oneself to another person and doing so can cause a bandwagon effect of not needing to exercise or just the opposite in the not-me fallacy.
