– Joe, do you sit all day?
– Of course I sit all day. What,
am I gonna have a standing desk like a psycho?
– Sitting all day might actually be killing you.
Guess I’ll have to Science the (bleep) out of this one myself.
– Time to do a little sitting.
– Joe, what are you doing?
– Sitting down. Feels great.
Sitting totally rocks.
– Yeah, that’s not a good thing.
– So why don’t you explain
to me these alleged health effects
that I might experience from sitting all day.
– Numerous studies over the years have linked too much
sitting to a greater risk of obesity,
higher blood pressure, abnormal cholesterol levels,
or even ultimately premature death due to stroke,
cardiovascular disease, or certain
types of cancer.
– Death? I hate death.
Now,maybe I haven’t done as much research as you have
but standing all day is bull (bleep).
I’ve had jobs where I’ve stood all day
and that really is uncomfortable too.
– I mean, it’s not that much better for you.
– Ah, I knew it.
– One of the differences between standing and sitting
is that standing burns a few more calories.
One study showed that it was about nine more calories per hour.
Multiply that by an eight hour day.
That’s about 72 calories. Or,
a quarter of a candy bar, which is not very much.
As far as your overall health is concerned,
standing in one place for extended periods of time
versus sitting in one place for that same amount of time
isn’t going to make much of a difference.
– Just by virtue of sitting in this building,
I am going to get some sort of cancer or have a stroke?
– Well, not necessarily.
– The working stiff can’t win in this country, am I right?
在这个国家 工薪阶层是赢不了的 对吗？
– Not necessarily.
So, there are ways you can combat this.
– One message is clear: movement is the key.
Experts at Cornell suggest getting up and moving
every 20 to 30 minutes.
It can be as simple as getting up and walking around for a few minutes.
But the key here is getting your muscles working
and getting that blood flowing.
– Oh, I like this.
So, something healthy like get up, go to the kitchen, grab a doughnut.
– No. – Get a soda.
So at this point in the video,
I think we can both agree
exercise totally sucks.
But, hypothetically speaking, if I wanted to exercise
to offset the damages done by glorious sitting,
what would I have to do?
– 150 minutes of moderate exercise a week has been shown
to reduce your overall mortality rate by seven percent
compared to if you were just sitting around all day
and not exercising at all.
Now, if you increase that amount of time to
300 minutes of moderate exercise a week,
that can actually reduce your overall mortality rate by 14 percent.
– What are you doing?
I just explained to you why sitting is so bad.
– Yeah I know, I’m taking a break.
对 我知道 我要休息一下
– No, that’s not what I said.
You need to be moving with your break.
You know, if you’re sitting all day,
it’s going to be bad for your heart, it’s bad
for your brain, it’s bad for your arteries,
it’s bad for your overall health.
It will make you die sooner.
– Get the (bleep) up.
– Alright. Geez.
You’re starting to sound like me.
– Now move.
– Okay, alright, I’m moving, I’m moving, I’m moving,
好好好 我动了 我动了 我动了
I’m leaving, I’m leaving, goodbye.
我走了 我走了 拜拜
– Bye, Joe. – See ya.
-拜拜 Joe -再见
