vigorous exercise

vigorous exercise

Exercise intense enough to cause sweating and/or heavy breathing, and/or increase of heart rate to near maximum. Vigorous exercise is formally defined as that which requires > 6 METs (metabolic equivalent of O2 consumption), and includes:
• Brisk walking—6.5–8 km (4–5 mph);
• Lap swimming;
• Roller-blading—2–3 hours/week;
• Running—9.5–11 km/hour (6–7 mph);
• Shoveling snow;
• Singles tennis.

There is a graded inverse relationship between total physical activity (vigorous exercise in particular) and cardiovascular mortality.
