A new study, published in Medicine and Science in Sports Exercise by a team of researchers from the University of California, San Francisco and the University of Mississippi have found that it’s possible to dramatically slow down the aging process.

The researchers used a common “mortality predictor”- a measure of how well your cells function - to examine how it affects the function of your body in terms of health and longevity .

So, what are these “mortality predictors?” The length of a cell’s telomeres.

Let’s Talk Telomeres And Why They Matter.

Telomeres are like “armor” protecting against DNA damage.

Telomeres are found on the end of your DNA strands - they “cap off” your DNA and protect it from damage.

Think about telomeres like the tassels on your favorite hooded sweatshirt. Those little plastic caps on the drawstrings for a sweatshirt’s hood? They keep the cotton strings from unraveling and fraying.

Telomeres function in a similar way. They protect DNA from damage.

As your cells get older, telomeres get smaller. They start to weaken and unravel. And your DNA is no longer protected from damage.

Scientific consensus is that shorter telomeres equals a shorter life.

Are Your Unhealthy Habits Accelerating the Aging Process?

Your health and lifestyle, what you eat, what you do, the toxins you are exposed too—they all affect your telomeres and increase the shortening of telomeres and the onset of aging.

  • Obesity Accelerates Shortening of Telomeres

  • Smoking and Tobacco Use Speeds Up Shortening of Telomeres

  • Insomnia, Fatigue, and Even Stress Increases Shortening of Telomeres

  • Metabolic Disorders, Diabetes, and More Speed Up Shortening of Telomeres

And Shorter Telomeres, To Scientists, Doctors, And Researchers, Are A Primary Sign Of Aging.

various stages of aging

The study I referenced above from Medicine and Science in Sports Exercise used blood samples to test for telomere length to determine how certain types of exercise can slow the aging process.

Study participants, from age 20 to 84, were asked a series of questions about how often they exercise.

Using blood samples from study participants, exercise FREQUENCY and TYPE were compared to telomere length.

What researchers found was incredible and it may be the KEY to staying young and healthy.

It’s not just if you workout that keeps you young, but HOW you workout matters

Specifically, the research study pointed to workout variety as a key indicator of the length of a person’s telomeres.

Here’s what the study I referenced above showed: People who…

  • Regularly participated in a single type of exercise were 3% less likely to have shortened telomeres.

  • Regularly participated in two types of exercise were 24% less likely to have short telomeres.

  • Regularly participated in three types of exercise were 29% less likely to have shortened telomeres.

  • Regularly participated in four types of exercise were 59% less likely to have very short telomeres.

Within the study, these correlations were most relevant in the age 40 to age 65 group, meaning that middle-age is the ideal time to start or keep at a diverse exercise program.

That Doesn’t Mean You Have to Exercise MORE

Researchers weren’t able to pinpoint a specific “ideal” exercise duration or frequency in the study—but, as you can see, what they were able to determine is that men and women age 40 to 65 with more diverse exercise plans are less likely to experience early telomere damage.

This anti-aging research study directly confirms what I’ve found as a coach and personal trainer: Exercise diversity, proper planning, and the TYPES Of exercise you perform matters more than how long you exercise.

You can see the difference not just in how quickly people age but also…

  • How Quickly You Lose Weight (Type of exercise matters more than duration)

  • How Fast You Build Lean Muscle (More isn’t always better)

  • How Your Metabolism Responds to Workouts (again, duration is not more important than diversity)

The important message from my experience (and the latest research I just shared is this): Exercise is good but a variety of the right kind of exercises is better.

That’s why the first thing I like to tell my personal training clients is this: 20 Minutes is really all it takes to turn back the clock on aging, look younger, and feel great.

20 Minutes is Really All It Takes?

From fighting age to losing weight (or finally seeing 6 pack abs again), 20 minutes really is all it takes.

I created a video explaining why.
