The Copenhagen City Heart study between 1976 and 2003 revealed that regular jogging increases the life expectancy of men by 6.2 years, and women by 5.6 years.
A chief cardiologist of the study, Peter Schnohr, also found out that jogging: Improves oxygen intake and heart function, reduces blood pressure and inflammation markers, increases insulin sensitivity and bone density, helps to prevent obesity and blood clots, among many other things
The Copenhagen City Heart study itself recommends between 60 and 150 minutes per week, in total.
The National Health Service (NHS) likewise suggests that 19 to 64-year-olds should be doing 150 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise each week where aerobic exercise is a workout which you can maintain for relatively long periods, without too much impact on your breathing rate.
