Abstract

The Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines for adults only consider aerobic activities completed at moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (PA) intensity (MVPA) and resistance training (RT). Recent data suggest that low-intensity activities such as sleeping, sitting and light-intensity PA are also important for health, and could impact the risk for type 2 diabetes (T2D).
