How Much Exercise Is Sufficient?

Posted by

While some people seem to be addicted to exercise, there are others who will do everything to avoid it. What could be the best way to exercise? How much exercise do we need to do to keep our body healthy and in good shape? There are so many opinions in answer to these questions but apparently it is ideal to exercise at least 5 days in a week.

Any form of exercise is okay as long as you commit yourself to do it. You can do simple exercises like boxing. You just need to purchase boxing gloves and head to the gym to do sparring or hit a punching bag. You don’t need to do a full 2 hour session of exercise. According to the American Heart Association, making small increments of exercise may be enough to lower the risk of coronary heart disease. This is very good news for people who would like to stay healthy but are not avid fans of exercising.

Medical and exercise experts put out a current guide that suggests that you only need 150 minutes of exercise every week, regardless if it was moderate or intense. The guidelines show that lesser physical activity also results to some health benefits. Studies show that exercising 10 to 15 minutes every day is sufficient in reducing a lot of health risks. The results of these studies seem very promising for people who do not like to exercise. However, they have to remember, that if they want to lose weight and keep a tone body, they need to make time for some kind of physical activity.
