Your best personal exercise is one that you will stick with to make fitness and longevity impacts on your life.
Recently published studies of elders who exercise seem to suggest that Team sports make offer superior longevity perks.
Which one, of those analyzed activities, suggested the biggest boost to longevity? Tennis.
Right- there may be unknown unknowns at play – perhaps affluence.
The lowest sport for longevity (though still favorable)? Gym rat.
Social connection is strongly suggested as a factor in the tennis results. It’s hard to play tennis solo 🤔.
As a rower who has often been told about crew’s longevity perks- I suggest that there are other team sports which keep us going besides tennis 🎾.
Yet there is a factor to remember as we boomers sweat and elevate our heart rates: just doing it (whatever it is) with someone you like is best.
Perhaps the LOVE score in tennis is there for a reason⁉️
