The one thing that is certain is that exercise, in whatever measure, is
good for us.

.

Research literature outlines several benefits of exercise. First and
foremost, it will benefit the cardiovascular system.  To fight any
cardiovascular disease, one needs to exercise regularly, says Nachiappan
Chockalingam, professor of clinical biomechanics at Staffordshire
University and an affiliate professor within the Faculty of Health
Sciences at the University of Malta.

.

There is an increasing amount of literature which outlines the benefits of
physical activity and exercise in dealing with stress and other mental
health issues. Moderate exercises are also shown to be beneficial in other
musculoskeletal conditions such as back pain.
He argues that moderate exercise, may however, mean different things to
different individuals.

.

I am not an exercise physiologist but, from a general human health point
of view, moderate exercise is where someone is working hard enough to
raise their heart rate and break into a sweat, explains Chockalingam.
Educating the public on the benefits of exercise and its role in reducing
obesity is paramount

.

Some of the moderate exercises include cycling and fast walking. There are
several guidelines but one should discuss their exercise activity with
their physician before taking up any type of vigorous exercise.

.

As a visiting professor to the University of Malta, who has visited the
country several times, Chockalingam is well aware of the obesity problem
prevalent in the country. He admits that it is difficult to attribute the
problem to any particular factor.

.

I work closely with colleagues from different disciplines. There are
several variables which contribute to the obesity epidemic but it is
difficult to identify one factor as a contributor. This is the case across
all countries.

.

He adds that education is key to controlling this epidemic.
Education comes in several forms for varying groups. Some people take up
exercise after associating themselves with a chronic health condition;
either for them or for their immediate family, he points out.

.

However, educating the public on the benefits of exercise and its role in
reducing obesity is paramount. If we can convince the youngsters and make
physical activity as a part of their routine  then it becomes habitual and
benefits the whole society.

.

Malta ranked first for overweight and obese children in the latest EU
Health and Behaviour in School Children Report. In an effort to find a
solution to this growing problem, the Clinical Biomechanics Research Group
at the University of Malta launched a novel research earlier this year
which is aimed at increasing the amount of moderate-to-vigorous physical
activity reached in school during curricular physical education (PE)
lessons via a structured physical activity programme.
