In 2009 paleo exercise guru Mark Sisson posited that hard training is no guarantee of health, saying that

Endurance training is antithetical to anti-aging. So it amazes me when guys in their 40s and 50s who are training for a marathon or Ironman suggest that doing so will keep them young.*

It took almost three years for his idea to percolate to the mainstream press and a little more, surprisingly enough, for the National Institutes of Health to come around, because, you know, they’re the government and therefore must lead the way, right?

Still, Bob Schutz has discovered the NIH paper first and added some insight on his excellent exercise site Blue Mountain Fitness.
