OPEN Journal of the American Heart Association | 24 Mar 2018

PF Saint-Maurice, RP Troiano, CE Matthews and WE Kraus
Abstract
The 2008 Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommends that adults accumulate moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) in bouts of ≥10 minutes for substantial health benefits. To what extent the same amount of MVPA accumulated in bouts versus sporadically reduces mortality risk remains unclear.
