Anal­y­sis of phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity sur­veys across 168 coun­tries and en­com­pass­ing 1.9 bil­lion peo­ple has found that an as­ton­ish­ing 1.4 bil­lion adults aren’t get­ting enough ex­er­cise – and that fig­ure hasn’t changed since 2001.

The re­sults were com­piled by re­searchers from the World Health Or­gan­i­sa­tion and pub­lished in The Lancet Global Health jour­nal after they an­a­lysed 358 sur­veys world­wide. Suf­fi­cient ex­er­cise was de­fined as per­form­ing at least 150 min­utes of mod­er­ate-in­ten­sity or 75 min­utes of vig­or­ous-in­ten­sity phys­i­cal

ac­tiv­ity per week.
