Women may reap greater health benefits from exercising: Prof Lynch on ABC Radio

We’ve all heard it before, exercising is essential for our physical and mental well-being. But could the health benefits gained from exercising possibly be different between men and women? Professor Gordon Lynch, from the Department of Anatomy & Physiology, delves into the latest research telling us how to optimise our time and effort to gain the maximum health gains from physical activity.

We’re told to aim for at least 150 to 300 minutes of moderate physical activity per week. However, in reality, it is hard to achieve this goal while living a busy life.

In a recent episode of ABC Radio’s Overnights program, Professor Gordon Lynch, a prominent figure in the School of Biomedical Sciences Department of Physiology, sheds light on how women may obtain greater health benefits from exercise than men–even when carrying out equivalent or lower doses of physical activity.
