Leisure time physical activity and mortality: a detailed pooled analysis of the dose-response relationship.
IMPORTANCE The 2008 Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommended a minimum of 75 vigorous-intensity or 150 moderate-intensity minutes per week (7.5 metabolic-equivalent hours per week) of
Level of moderate-intensity leisure-time physical activity and reduced mortality in middle-aged and elderly Chinese
TLDR
Regular participation in moderate-intensity LTPA was associated with reduced mortality, particularly CVD mortality, even when theLTPA was below the minimum level recommended by current physical activity guidelines.
Leisure Time Physical Activity and Mortality
TLDR
Mortality was lower with participation in specific leisure time physical activities, but not with more time spent on those activities, which could suggest that avoiding a sedative lifestyle is more important than a high volume of activity.
Mortality benefits of population-wide adherence to national physical activity guidelines: a prospective cohort study
TLDR
Among a representative English population, adherence to activity guidelines was associated with significantly reduced mortality and efforts to increase population-wide activity levels could produce large public health benefits and should remain a focus of health promotion efforts.

TLDR
The data indicate that there is a dose-response relationship between the degree of physical activity and early death and an increase in activity was just as strongly associated with reduced mortality as quitting smoking.
Beneficial associations of low and large doses of leisure time physical activity with all-cause, cardiovascular disease and cancer mortality: a national cohort study of 88,140 US adults
TLDR
It is found that beneficial association between leisure time PA and mortality starts from a low dose and doing more vigorous exercise could lead to additional health benefits.
Associations of Exercise Types with All-Cause Mortality among U.S. Adults
TLDR
It is suggested that some types of exercise have unique benefits for longevity, but most are indistinguishable in relation to longevity.

Physical activity recommendations and decreased risk of mortality.
TLDR
Following physical activity guidelines is associated with lower risk of death, and Mortality benefit may also be achieved by engaging in less than recommended activity levels.
Physical activity and mortality in postmenopausal women.
TLDR
These results demonstrate a graded, inverse association between physical activity and all-cause mortality in postmenopausal women and strengthen the confidence that population recommendations to engage in regular physical activity are applicable to post menopausal women.
Low physical activity and mortality in women: Baseline lifestyle and health as alternative explanations
TLDR
This study indicates that even fairly small amounts of activity will reduce mortality in older women, and indicates that the association between physical inactivity and mortality will be overestimated if this is not taken into account.
Physical activity and mortality: a prospective study among women.
TLDR
Part of the link between physical activity and mortality risk is probably spurious and difficult to remove analytically; however, on the basis of epidemiologic evidence, much of the health benefit of activity is real.
Obesity, physical activity, and mortality in a prospective chinese elderly cohort.
TLDR
In the elderly, the relationship between obesity and mortality varies according to the underlying health status, with those with poor health status associated with better outcome, whereas in those with initially good health Status, obesity is associated with worse outcome.
Walking compared with vigorous physical activity and risk of type 2 diabetes in women: a prospective study.
TLDR
The data suggest that greater physical activity level is associated with substantial reduction in risk of type 2 diabetes, including physical activity of moderate intensity and duration.
Assessing physical activity in an Asian country: low energy expenditure and exercise frequency among adults in Taiwan.
TLDR
Invoking a goal of >or=750 kcal/week for Asians, attainable by exercising 4 hours/week, can facilitate nutritionists in assessing LTPA adequacy, and recognizing the concept of cumulative energy expenditure will encourage the infrequent exercisers such as "weekend warriors" to continue with their activities.

TLDR
The findings indicate that the relative intensity and not the duration of walking is of most importance in relation to all-cause mortality, and the general recommendation to all adults would be that brisk walking is preferable to slow.

The “Weekend Warrior” and Risk of Mortality
TLDR
The results suggest that regular physical activity generating 1,000 kcal/ week or more should be recommended for lowering mortality rates among men without major risk factors, however, among those with no major risk Factors, even 1-2 episodes/week generating1,000 calories/week or more can postpone mortality.
