How Often Should You Exercise

People often wonder how often you should exercise and how long your workouts should be. As a general rule, you want to exercise at least 30 minutes per day, 5 days per week to achieve optimal health. If you have specific goals, such as muscle building or weight loss, you will need to do more. You don’t need to spend a ton of time or be in a gym to get a good workout. You can get your daily exercise by taking the stairs instead of the elevator, parking further away from your office building, or even taking a lunchtime stroll. Another rule of thumb is to reduce the amount of time spent sitting. The more hours you sit each day will increase your risk for metabolic problems, regardless of whether or not you achieve the recommended amount of physical activity. No matter what, make it a point to exercise more throughout your day. It will be good for your mind and for your body. by Gina Stallone
