NOTE: Where your 2015 Estimated Chargeable
Profit is likely to exceed 2014 Chargeable Profit
you are advised to increase your quarterly
payments to accommodate the increased profit
and avoid interest on short payments.
NB: Any short payment or non-payment of
quarterly instalment is also subject to interest at
the rate of 20% per annum from the date the

Health experts advise that children and teenagers
should do at least 60 minutes of physical activity
a day. This can accumulate over the day---for exam-
ple cycling to school, walking or running around
during the recess, and doing sports and gymnastics.
Now, a new study of teenagers shows that the inten-
sity of short bursts of activity makes a difference
to health outcomes.
The study shows that as little two minutes of high-
intensity exercise four times a day had a more ben-
eficial effect on teens health measures than moderate
Researchers at the University of Exeter in the UK
concluded that when adolescents accumulate exercise
over the day, short bouts of intense activity have a
more beneficial effect on health than shorts bouts
of less intense activity.
Reporting in the journal
Metabolism: Clinical and
Experimental, they show how
as little two minutes of high-
intensity exercise four times
a day had a more beneficial
effect on blood sugar levels,
fat metabolism and blood
pressure---measured after eat-
ing a fatty meal---than the
same amount of moderate
Senior author Dr Alan
Barker, a lecturer in pediatric exercise and health at
Exeter, says: "Children and adolescents tend to per-
form brief bouts of exercise. This study shows that
the intensity of this pattern of exercise is important,
with high-intensity providing superior health benefits
than moderate-intensity exercise."
For the study, the team examined 19 teenagers
blood sugar, systolic blood pressure and fat oxidation
at regular intervals over three days, during which the
youngsters consumed a high fat milkshake for break-
fast and lunch. The participants were nine male and
ten female 13-year-olds.
During the three days, the participants completed
three different exercise patterns in random order:
rest, four bouts of high-intensity, and four bouts of
moderate intensity exercise performed on exercise
bikes. On exercise days, the bouts were done two
During the bouts of exercise, the participants per-
formed the same amount of work---so the researchers
could examine the effect of intensity alone.
The authors found that neither type of exercise
changed levels of excess fat in the blood. However,
brief bouts of high-intensity exercise---but not mod-
erate-intensity exercise---reduced blood sugar and
systolic blood pressure, and increased fat metabolism
in the teen boys and girls.
They conclude: "The intensity of accumulated
exercise may therefore have important implications
for health outcomes in youth."
The study adds to a growing body of evidence that
suggests accumulating short bursts of high-intensity
exercise may be more important for heart health than
accumulating moderate intensity exercise. This is
important because heart disease is the leading cause
of death worldwide, and the drivers start when we
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC) recommends that children and teenagers in
the US should be physically active for at least one
hour a day.
Most of the daily exercise should be aerobic to
help healthy development of the heart, lungs and
blood vessels, but there should also be some that
strengthen muscles and bones.
Aerobic activity includes, for example, brisk walking

(moderate intensity) and running (high intensity).
Muscle strengthening activity includes gymnastics
and push-ups, and bone-strengthening activity
includes jumping rope and running.
Parents concerned about their children not getting
enough exercise may consider enrolling them for
dance classes. However, MNT recently learned of a
study from the University of California, San Diego
School of Medicine, that found most of kids time
in youth dance classes is inactive, suggesting parents
should be careful about selecting the right dance
class for their kids. (www.medicalnewstoday.com) The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that children and
