People in their 70s and 80s recovered more quickly from physical setbacks if they remained active, a study finds. Walking a total of 150 minutes a week with some strength training did the trick.

A recent study took more than 1,600 sedentary people between 70 and 89 years old with some functional limitations, but who could walk a quarter of a mile in 15 minutes. Half of the participants aimed for daily 20 minute walks, the other half did not.

We found the results of the study very interesting and we think you will too.
