Health benefits of ‘green exercise’ for kids shown in new study

Children who are exposed to scenes of nature while exercising are more likely to experience health-enhancing effects after activity, according to a Coventry University study published this week in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health.

Sports science academics in the University’s Department of Applied Sciences and Health asked kids aged 9-10 years to complete a series of 15 minute moderate intensity cycling activities — one whilst viewing a video of a forest track synced to the exercise bike and another with no visual stimulus.

The researchers found that after the ‘green exercise’ the children’s post-activity blood pressure was significantly lower than it was without the simulated forest environment, indicating that the nature scenes promoted positive health effects.

Data showed that the children’s mean systolic blood pressure — the pressure in the arteries when the heart beats — was 97.2 mmHg a quarter of an hour after green exercise, compared with 102.7 mmHg after normal activity (over 5 per cent lower).

Lower blood pressure is normally associated with a lower risk of developing health problems, whereas high blood pressure — also known as hypertension — is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease.

Dr Michael Duncan, lead author of the study and associate head of the Department of Applied Sciences and Health at Coventry University, said:

“Hypertension is a chronic health problem across the world, so given the results we’ve seen in our study it’s crucial that we continue to try to understand the role physical activity and — in particular — green exercise plays in blood pressure.

“If there is indeed a correlation between viewing scenes of nature and a lower blood pressure post exercise, as indicated by our data, it could have very positive implications in encouraging public health practitioners to prescribe outdoor exercise to reduce health risk.”

    60 million people came to watch the ass in the cover shot of this video and
    went away disapointed and disgusted when it turned out to be a middle aged
    man in a track suit. Sucked in once again.
