    Default The first 20 minutes

    Gretchen Reynolds writes the health column and wellness blog for the NY Times. She has a new book titled "The First 20 Minutes"

    It's a book on some of the latest scientific studies of longevity, health, what is health, touching on subjects like hypertrophy, ailing knees and more.
    How much exercise is enough, how much is too much...

    What it's not is a book with exercise routines or schedules. Probably not terribly interesting for elite or super competitive athletes either.

    It's clearly written and an easy read (and although there is a lot of science in it, it is explained in an easy way), I recommend it.

    Just read "Drop dead healthy" which seems to have the same topic. You don't happen to know that one, and can tell me how these books compare?

    Sorry, I've not read Drop Dead Healthy, but I'll probably want to check it out.

    Well, very thanks for sharing this nice and worth to read content. The all science about exercise and workouts, the time duration and best time are very important for a fitness seeker and for every one who involve in any type of exercise routine. Some basic knowledge is necessary to understand things related to exercise..
