You know you should exercise to keep healthy, but how much should you exercise? Not to become a competitive athlete, but to live a longer, healthier life?
A new study reveals we need 150 minutes of moderate exercise a week – that’s 2 and a half hours. But if you don’t have the time, 75 minutes of more intense, hardcore exercise will do the trick.
You might even already be doing it – moderate exercise can be anything from walking to housework to golfing, or even playing with the kids.
If you run, swim, or do cardio, well that’s considered more intensive. And the more of any exercise you can do, the better, if you can get it in every week.
