California researchers have a simple message for men looking to prevent heart problems: be active and sit less.

In a new study, they found the risk of heart failure more than doubled for men who sat for at least five hours a day and got little exercise. 

That’s compared to active men who sat less than two hours a day. 

The American Heart Association recommends that men and women get at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise each week.
