From The Right Dose of Exercise for a Longer Life:

Two  large scale studies show the magic formula to long life.  Work out an average of an hour a day or more with at least a third of that in an intense program or activity.  This level reduces your risk of dying prematurely by about 50%.

Intensity. Those who spent more than 30 percent of their exercise time in strenuous activities [like Jay’s Kickboxing] gained an extra 13 percent reduction in early mortality.

Duration. The more you work out, including moderate fitness like brisk walking, the longer you typically will live.

  • Those who exercised a little lowered their risk of premature death by 20 percent.
  • Those who met the typical recommendation of  150 minutes per week had a 31 percent less risk of dying.
  • The sweet spot was 450 minutes per week, or about an hour per day.  These people  were 39 percent less likely to die prematurely.
  • Above that level the benefits plateaued and never significantly declined.
