Why Exercise Is Hard



Thanks to the University of Minnesota for sponsoring this video!

Because exercise isn’t essential for short-term survival, we don’t exercise enough, so we need to reincorporate purposeful physical activity into our lives.

Thanks also to our Patreon patrons and our YouTube members.

To learn more, start your googling with these keywords:
Physical activity – any bodily movement produced by the contraction of skeletal muscle that increases energy expenditure above a basal level
Exercise – a form of physical activity that is planned, structured, repetitive, and performed (primarily) with the goal of improving health or fitness
Recommended levels of physical activity (USA) – 150 minutes moderate-intensity or 75 minutes vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity per week, or an equivalent combination, and muscle-strengthening activities at least 2 days / week
Evolutionary medicine – a field that uses evolutionary theory & data to better understand (the origins of) health & disease
Mismatch conditions – health conditions that are more prevalent or severe today than in the past because the body is inadequately or insufficiently adapted to modern environmental conditions (likely including: cavities, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis)
