Endurance Exercise Reduces Disease Risk, Per Study

University of Copenhagen study shows changes DNA in skeletal muscle cells

Have you been confused about the recent fad for ultra-short bouts of exercise? 


A new study from the University of Copenhagen featured in the journal Molecular Metabolism found that endurance exercise rewires the epigenetic information of skeletal muscle cells in the genome linked to disease. New signals are created through this process, helping to lower the risk for disease, according to the study, which was performed on men during a six-week endurance exercise program.


That's good news if you were wondering if you should continue your usual regime of classes, workouts, running or cycling.
