The Minute Movement team always loves reading articles that support our awesome program and this one by the University of Utah , is no exception! What started as an interesting hypothesis and has proven to work for us, is more and more often being supported by the medical and scientific communities.
We’ve read for years that we can (and should) get more movement in our day by taking the stairs and parking farther away from store entrances when we go shopping. But weight bearing exercises are also important and increased muscle mass helps to increase your metabolism (not to mention that you look better with strong muscles). Be sure to add (or continue) your Minute Movement exercises to your extra walking for ideal benefits!
