A sharp walk to and from work could counteract the health risks of being desk-bound at work for long periods every day, according to researchers.

They said that every hour that is over six hours a day increases the risk of dying for some reason by 4 percent, but it disappears if you get at least 300 minutes of moderate or powerful exercise a week.

This corresponds to a half-hour walk to work and back, in five days a week.

The Australian researchers at the University of Sydney emphasized that the benefits came from exercise rather than just lowering the time spent.

The study, published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, tracked over 149,000 men and women aged 45 and over for almost nine years.

The researchers found that while 150 to 199 minutes of exercise a week greatly compensated for the risk of death relationships associated with prolonged sitting, those who received 300 to 419 minutes interrupted it.

  A quick walk to and from the job could counteract the health risks of being desk-bound at work for long periods every day, according to researchers. Half an hour's walk to work and back, for five days a week equals 300 minutes of moderate or powerful training
