Between the stresses of work and home and everything else you have going on, it doesn't leave a lot of time at the end of the day to hit the gym.

Who has time to exercise? Between your commute and your family, there is about 10 minutes left at the end of the day for you.

But you can reap most of the health benefits of regular daily exercise if you give it your all on the weekend, according to researchers from the University of Sydney in Australia. Translation: Weekend warriors have a lower risk of death from cancer and cardiovascular disease -- even if they are obese or have other medical risk factors -- compared with those who never exercise.

A study found that compared with those who reported no physical activity, all-cause mortality risk in the insufficiently active was 31 percent lower, 30 percent lower in weekend warriors and 35 percent lower in the regularly active.
