Long-Term Physical Activity in Young Adults

Maintaining at least 150 minutes per week of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity is essential for the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease.

In a recent study including young adults, and after a median follow-up of 19 years, participants with a time in target range (TTR) of exercise of at least 75% had a 40% lower risk of cardiovascular events (HR: 0.60; 95% CI: 0.38 to 0.95) compared with the lowest TTR group (<25%).

In young adults, long-term compliance to the recommended volume of exercise may help lower the risk of cardiovascular events in later life.

Despite the busy workload, managing to maintain the guideline-recommended physical activity level for at least 75% of time across young adulthood is strongly advised.
