Not getting enough exercise is linked to a number of health problems, including obesity, heart disease, diabetes and even some forms of dementia. The women regular exercise during working hours has proved useful.
Recent research has suggested that there is evidence of a physical activity paradox, with beneficial health outcomes associated with a leisure-time physical activity, but detrimental health outcomes for people engaging in a high level occupational physical activity.
Job stress can take a toll on your health, and as it turns out, if your job is physically demanding, it could cause an early death.
Pieter Coenen, a renowned occupational health researcher at the VU University Medical Center, Netherlands analyzed over 17 studies that examined the effects and consequences of job-based physical activities. Both of these exercises have different sets of physiological outcomes.
But new research claims that those who are in more physically demanding jobs aren't in a vastly better position. Although the results might seem a little contradictory to all the advantages of exercising but according to Coenen, the studies were based on the leisure-time physical activity.

Professor Kay-Tee Khaw, professor of clinical gerontology at the University of Cambridge says: 'Sedentary work compared to work that requires heavy physical activity is hugely confounded by education, social class and all the other associated behaviours. People who consider exercising as a part of an activity basically stay energetic for a short duration and take small breaks in between when they are exhausted.
Physical activity if done on moderate levels can increase the heart rate and blood pressure to strengthen your heart and the cardiovascular system.
"Our hypothesis is that these kinds of activities actually strain your cardiovascular system rather than help you to improve the fitness of your cardiovascular system". "This evidence indicates that physical activity guidelines should differentiate between occupational and leisure time physical activity". The studies were conducted in 1960-2010 years, they involved nearly 200 thousand people. Most of the studies they included took lifestyle factors, such as smoking and alcohol intake, into account, but Coenen concedes that not all of the studies completely ruled out their harmful effects.
"The message I would give is that people should try to follow the physical activity guidelines regardless of what they do for a job", Hamer said.
