Is there science behind 10000 steps? 10,000 isn’t a magic number
Were those who managed 10,000 steps a day less likely to meet an untimely end, or did some other number seem matter more? The researchers determined, as expected, that getting more exercise is good. Six thousand steps beats 5,000 and 5,000 beats 4,000 for health outcomes.
How many METs is 10000 steps? The report indicates that 8,000 to 10,000 steps/day is approximately equivalent to 60 minutes of walking per day at an intensity of 3 METs, and that it is also approximately equivalent to 23 MET-hours/week of MVPA which is the recommended physical activity level in this guideline.
What is the 10000 steps rule? It’s suggested the average person walks about 100 steps per minute – which would mean it would take a little under 30 minutes for the average person to walk a mile. So in order for someone to reach the 10,000 step goal, they would need to walk between four and five miles a day (around two hours of activity).
What is the evidence for 10000 steps? A sedentary person who increased his or her steps from 1,000 to 10,000 per day had a 46% lower mortality risk. A sedentary person who increased his or her steps to 3,000 per day, five days a week had a 12% reduction in death.
