The Simplest Fitness Hack for Lifters

The evidence is in. You don’t need to walk 10,000 steps a day to increase your lifespan or shrink your waistline. But you do need to get at least 7,000 steps for health and body composition. About 7,000 steps can reduce your risk of death by 50 to 70 percent. That might just be the world’s simplest fitness hack!
