Exercise, are there any limits to its powers?

Exercise rarely gets a bad press but maybe it doesn’t get enough good press. Of course exercising has risks but the risks associated with not exercising are far greater.

Recent main stream media reports on exercise demonstrate this perfectly:

In a study reported widely regular exercisers, in the case of this study long distance cyclists, had significantly better functioning immune systems than non-exercisers: https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2018/mar/08/cycling-keeps-your-immune-system-young-study-finds

And the results of three other studies on best practice for non-specific low back pain (the most common, not serious but still painful and potentially incapacitating low back pain) showed that exercise plus advice on how to get back into everyday activity were the most effective treatments: https://www.theguardian.com/society/2018/mar/21/lower-back-pain-being-treated-badly-on-a-global-scale-study-says

In the later report it is no surprise to me to see my brilliant thesis tutor Nadine Foster as one of the lead researchers.

Exercise is the closest there is to an elixir.  Bottle it and everyone would take it.  It does require effort but the results are obvious, clear and worth more than the money most people would have to spend to exercise with the right kit, in a decent environment and even if they enlist the assistance of a exercise professional.  Exercise will not only extend your life span, it will assist you to life better whilst you live longer, reducing your risk of nearly every non-communicable medical problem including cancer, type two diabetes, lung and heart disease, joint problems and falls.  It will of course help your sporting performance, keep you fit for work and aid you in looking your best.
