More recently we found that Spanish society is one of the most sedentary on the European continent. In a recent Epineo survey, 22% of the population admit that they do not practice any sport, even unintentionally. According to data from Ipsos and the World Economic Forum, Spain is the fourth country in Europe with the least amount of sport.
In the meantime, science continues to try to improve on this data by demonstrating the benefits of physical activity. This time they did it through a systematic review and a meta-analysis on the relationship between resistance training and mortality risk.
Endurance sports reduce mortality risk
This conclusion is reached by Shailendra et al. (2022) in a study published in American Journal of Preventive Medicine,
Researchers from the Universities of Adelaide and Southern Queensland conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis including a total of ten studies conducted in non-clinical adult populations.
Among the results, Shailendra and colleagues have found that,Compared to no resistance training, any type of resistance training reduced the risk of all-cause mortality by 15%.,
In addition, also “Reduces heart disease mortality by 19% and cancer mortality by 14%”,
As the publication states, it has been found toMaximum risk reduction of 27% with about 60 minutes of resistance training per week”,
The review has been cited as “the strongest evidence to date”. Resistance training is associated with a reduced risk of all-cause mortality, heart disease and specific cancers.,
However, the researchers note that more research is needed to determine whether resistance training decreases any potential mortality benefits at higher doses.
