New Study on Exercise Requirements for Children

A new British study is changing the recommendations for the minimum daily exercise requirements for children. The authors, who studied children age 9-15, recommend children get a minimum of 90 minutes of exercise each day, to prevent heart disease and obesity.

This isn't strictly a rowing report - but it is interesting information in the age of video games and the internet. Parents of rowers should feel good - how many training sessions last less than 90 minutes?
