Exercise Recommendations

Do you ever wonder how much exercise is really necessary? It isn't good to overdo it, but you want to make sure you are working out enough to be fit. There are several organizations that make recommendations to stay fit. Here are some of them.

What you will find is that 30 minutes five days per week is the bare minimum. Many organizations and researchers also recommend 60 minutes per day. The research shows that 60 minutes will get you better health results than thirty minutes. One factor for the recommendations is that it is hard to get people to exercise thirty minutes per day. Many organizations would recommend 60 minutes per day, but they often think that nobody will do it. They then set a very minimum standard at 30 minutes per day.

American Heart Association Recommendation

Choose One or Two

1- Do cardiovascular training 30 minutes per day and five times per week at moderate intensity.

2- Do cardiovascular training 30 minutes per day and three times per week at vigorous intensity.

Weight Training

3- Do 8-10 strength exercises, eight to 12 repetitions each, and do it two times per week.

International Association for the Study of Obesity Recommendation

IASO recommends 45-60 minutes of moderate exercise each day. The Dietary Guidelines, recommend 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous exercise on most days of the week.

US Surgeon General

The recommendation is 30-60 minutes of exercise on most days.

US Department of Health and Human Services Recommendation

150 minutes to 300 minutes a week. At this level, the health rewards are substantial.

Activity at the high end of this range has additional and more extensive health benefits than activity at the low end.

Final Tip

Obese individuals are going to get more out of a thirty minute workout than those of normal weight. The reason is that it is harder to carry the extra weight around. This tip assumes that the intensity is the same. For example, both groups of people walk a fifteen minute mile.

One hour a day is necessary according to this video.
