A research group from the University of Lausanne conducted a study about the benefits of fitness for human body. It turned out that frequent physical activity (more than 14 hours per week) cause more harm than benefit.
The experiment covered 1200 young people aged 16 to 20 years. Health status was assessed by a 25-point scale adopted by the world Health Organization.
The best results, the scientists recorded in those who rationally approached the training process. In those who "lived" in the gym, a health indicator stood at $ 13 points.
Scientists say that health is not only physical exercise, but also nutrition and the correct mode of the day.
