Why Is Exercise Good For Us?

Dr Daniel Lieberman, a Harvard professor, talks us through why we’re over simplifying exercise in the modern world; why ‘just do it’ doesn’t work and why exercise really does matter. We look at how it’s connected to our mental and physical health, from coronavirus to depression; whether there is an optimal form or duration of exercise; how we’ve evolved – the biological and anthropological foundations of movement and whether sitting is the new smoking?
