So wait, do these studies say exercise and physical fitness enhances health?
Wow, what a stunning revelation! I have been waiting for these results, and next January 1st, I might just start exercising.
Based on the results, I’ve been trying to get it. I am now on 35 that is near to 40. I’ll got it in the near future.
The study doesn’t take into account that someone may do other forms of exercise but cannot do 40 pushups due to an AC or other problem. It’s similar to the BMI…which doesn’t account for muscle mass versus fat mass. With BMI, a male who is 6 feet tall, 200 lbs and 10% bodyfat is put in the same category as a male of same height and weight, with 30% bodyfat.
So 37 of 1100 cannot do 40 pushups and are prone to heart disease, which is roughly 3.5% of the group affected. I think the study is flawed as firefighters tend to have a higher rate of CVD compared to the average person.
