Physical activity and public health: updated recommendation for adults from the American College of Sports Medicine and the American Heart Association.
TLDR
The purpose of the present report is to update and clarify the 1995 recommendations on the types and amounts of physical activity needed by healthy adults to improve and maintain health. Expand
Physical activity and public health. A recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American College of Sports Medicine.
TLDR
Every US adult should accumulate 30 minutes or more of moderate-intensity physical activity on most, preferably all, days of the week. Expand
Effect of physical inactivity on major non-communicable diseases worldwide: an analysis of burden of disease and life expectancy
TLDR
Elimination of physical inactivity would increase the life expectancy of the world's population by 0·68 (range 0·41-0·95) years, and that decrease in or removal of this unhealthy behaviour could improve health substantially. Expand
Physical activity and public health in older adults: recommendation from the American College of Sports Medicine and the American Heart Association.
TLDR
The recommendation for older adults is similar to the updated ACSM/AHA recommendation for adults, but has several important differences including: the recommended intensity of aerobic activity takes into account the older adult's aerobic fitness; activities that maintain or increase flexibility are recommended; and balance exercises are recommended for Older adults at risk of falls.

American College of Sports Medicine Position Stand. Appropriate physical activity intervention strategies for weight loss and prevention of weight regain for adults.
TLDR
There is inadequate evidence to determine whether PA prevents or attenuates detrimental changes in chronic disease risk during weight gain, and no evidence from well-designed randomized controlled trials exists to judge the effectiveness of PA for prevention of weight regain after weight loss. Expand
Physical fitness and all-cause mortality. A prospective study of healthy men and women.
TLDR
Higher levels of physical fitness appear to delay all-cause mortality primarily due to lowered rates of cardiovascular disease and cancer, and lower mortality rates in higher fitness categories also were seen for cardiovascular Disease and cancer of combined sites. Expand
Physical activity assessment methodology in the Five-City Project.
TLDR
New methods of quantifying the physical activity habits of communities were developed which are practical for large health surveys, provide information on the distribution of activity habits in the population, can detect changes in activity over time, and can be compared with other epidemiologic studies of physical activity. Expand
Assessment of habitual physical activity by a seven-day recall in a community survey and controlled experiments.
TLDR
The physical activity recall provides useful estimates of habitual physical activity for research in epidemiologic and health education studies, and changes in energy expenditure were associated with changes in maximal oxygen uptake and body fatness. Expand
AHA/ACC guidelines for secondary prevention for patients with coronary and other atherosclerotic vascular disease: 2006 update endorsed by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.
TLDR
The development of the present statement involved a process of partial adaptation of other guideline statements and reports and supplemental literature searches, which confirmed that aggressive comprehensive risk factor management improves survival, reduces recurrent events and the need for interventional procedures, and improves quality of life for patients with established coronary disease.
