Some good news if you can only find time to exercise during the weekend, you might still be getting the benefits as those who work out more frequently. The risk of early death is as low for those who meet recommended activity targets in one or two sessions a week as it is for daily exercisers, researchers announced.  They took more than 60,000 adults in England and Scotland and found that weekend workouts lowered the risk of death by a similar margin to those who spread the same amount of exercise over the whole week. Those who met the physical activity target by exercising through the week had a 35% lower risk of death than inactive adults, while those who met the guideline over the weekend had a 30% lower risk of death. Proof that any exercise is better than none.
