The study of more than 6,000 adults showed that 43 percent of those who participated in short bouts of exercise met the federally recommended physical activity guidelines of 30 minutes a day. It's like using a rake or broom instead of leaf blower.

Less than 10 percent of those in structured exercise sessions met the minimum guidelines because they were more sedentary the rest of the day.
