Association of ‘weekend warrior,’ Other leisure-time physical activity patterns with mortality

JAMA Network

About The Study: This study of more than 350,000 adults in the United States did not find any significant difference in mortality rates between “weekend warriors” (those who performed the recommended levels of weekly physical activity in one to two sessions) and regularly active participants. Compared with those who were physically inactive, active participants (both “weekend warrior” and regularly active) had lower all-cause and cause-specific mortality rates.
