    Default Exercise research

    If you know about any interesting exercise research, or find any, post it here!

    There is the wikipedia page:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exercise

    which cites this paper in a table:

    Egan, B. and Zierath, J.R., 2013. Exercise metabolism and the molecular regulation of skeletal muscle adaptation. Cell metabolism, 17(2), pp.162-184. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.cmet.2012.12.012

    The sort of questions I'm interested in personally are:

    What is the optimal amount of exercise to do for the health benefits (i.e. fitness, quality of life, longevity), in terms of time and energy?

    What are the best (or alternatively, simplest) exercises to do?

    What are effective exercises to do with a minimum amount of effort? What exercises can be done when engaged doing something else? (for example, using an exercise pedal).

    Cardio has tons of benefits.

    Best? Depends on your goals. Simplest? You can always do bodyweight exercises. Push-ups, pull-ups, squats, and planks.

    Depends on your perception of effort. Strength training with barbells requires focus so you don't get hurt but can be short and easy. Jogging, you can listen to music during but, for me, is more a pain in the ass.
