Two week break in regular physical exercise can trigger metabolic changes, leading to an increased risk of developing chronic diseases, particularly diabetes mellitus type II and cardiovascular diseases and risk premature death.
The study included 28 healthy and physically active (in this case making ten thousand steps a day) people, whose average age was 25 years and with a body mass index of 25 kilograms per square meter. All patients wore the wristband for measuring physical activity.
Within two weeks of daily physical activity volunteers decreased by 8.5 thousand steps a day. During this period of time, this physical activity has decreased from 161 to 36 minutes (the difference is 125 minutes) per day, while attributable to sedentary occupations, increased at 129 minutes.
Conducted before and after the experiment, measurements have shown that for two weeks the volunteers lost significant muscle mass (on average 0.36 kg). Scientists recommend not to interrupt the physical activity even in such a short time as two weeks.
