  3. Myth-Busting Your Fitness Routine - Science Friday

    Woman walking, via ShutterstockYou’ve probably heard fitness experts say that 10,000 steps should be your goal if you want to reap the daily benefits of exercise. But did you ever wonder where that number comes from? It must be backed up by scientific evidence, right?

    Actually, the goal of 10,000 steps originated with a type of Japanese pedometer sold in the 1960s. It’s name, “manpo-kei,” translates to “10,000 steps meter.” And over the next several decades, 10,000 steps became the number around which scientists conducted fitness research. But Euan Ashley, an associate professor of cardiovascular medicine and genetics at Stanford University, points out that there isn’t a ton of evidence to suggest that 10,000 steps is the sort of magic number health experts think it is. It’s become more myth than science.

    And that’s not the only popular fitness claim with tenuous footing. Only a handful of studies have looked at the benefits of the standing desk, despite its near-universal acceptance as a healthy workplace habit. Bethany Barone Gibbs, a researcher from the University of Pittsburgh who has conducted some of those studies, joins Ashley to discuss the thin veil of evidence surrounding these fitness credos.
