Is walking 10,000 steps a day really beneficial for health? After 10,000 steps, even if you start celebrating, according to a recent study, it is not as beneficial as it has been said about it.

Is walking 10,000 steps a day really beneficial for health? After 10,000 steps, even if you start celebrating, according to a recent study, it is not as beneficial as it has been said about it.

Medical journalist Michael Mojle did a small experiment on the benefits of going 10,000 steps a day. Medical journalist Michael Moseley has done this study with Professor Rob Copeland of Sheffield Haylem University. Mozley found during the study where did this 10,000 step standard come from? Moseley discovered that it was the first time that this term was used in the Japanese marketing campaign during the 1964 Tokyo Olympics.

A company based on the work of academic doctor Yoshiro Hatano created a device called Mampo Kei (10,000 steps meters) to encourage Japanese people to make fun.

After more than 50 years have passed, do we still need to reach a number in a day to keep ourselves fit? The results of this study do not coincide with this.

Mozley compared 10,000 steps and other options for physical activity. That is, a comparative study of the benefits of running 10,000 steps and 10 active physical activity was done. 'The Active 10' term derives from a campaign run by Public Health England which involves a 10-minute walk 3 times a day at speed.

Mozley and Copeland did their study on the people of a factory in Sheffield who wanted to be more active on a regular basis.

Half the people were given the goal to walk 10,000 steps in a day, which is equivalent to walking 5 miles. At the same time, the remaining half people were asked to walk for 10 minutes 3 times a day. This 10-minute walk was equivalent to walking 1.5 miles and running 3000 steps. People who took part in 'Active 10' may have done less exercise overall but Mozley and Copeland found that this is a better way for physical activity.

According to Copeland, the participants in The Active 10 actually exercised 30 percent more than those who performed 10,000 steps, whereas they did physical activity for a shorter period of time. Active 10 is more profitable than walking 10,000 steps a day.
