How Much Does Sitting Negate Your Workout Benefits?


Study: Each hour of sitting erases 8% from the health benefit of an hour of running.

"According to a research team from the University of Texas Southwest Medical Center, each time unit of sitting cancels out 8 percent of your gain from the same amount of running. In other words, if you run for an hour in the morning, and then sit for 10 hours during the day, you lose roughly 80 percent of the health benefit from your morning workout."
