You want to exercise – but doing it daily can be such a chore. But maybe you can sit out during the week and just be a weekend warrior – a new study shows exercising only on the weekends can do as much for your health as if you did it every day!
To be considered an active adult, those between the ages of 18 and 64 should strive for 2 and half hours of moderate exercise per week – or 75 minutes of intense exercise.
You can split that up – a brisk 30 minute treadmill walk every weekday – or an intense hour and fifteen-minute run on one day.
If you’re looking to lose weight or build muscle, you’ll need to do more. But if you’re looking to maintain an active lifestyle, this is the one time when it’s okay to cram at the last minute.
