How much should I exercise?

Aerobic exercise and muscle strengthening
For the greatest overall health benefits, experts recommend that you do 20 to 30 minutes of aerobic activity three or more times a week and some type of muscle strengthening activity and stretching at least twice a week.

30 minutes a day
However, if you are unable to do this level of activity, you can gain substantial health benefits by accumulating 30 minutes or more of moderate-intensity physical activity a day, at least five times a week.

Begin slowly
If you have been inactive for a while, you may want to start with less strenuous activities such as walking or swimming at a comfortable pace. Beginning at a slow pace will allow you to become physically fit without straining your body. Once you are in better shape, you can gradually do more strenuous activity.

Don't push yourself
You don't have to push yourself to benefit from physical activity. Thirty minutes of gentle activity (like walking) can be just as healthy as 15 minutes of intense activity (like fast dancing).

Warning!
Recent research at Ohio State University has revealed a 200% increase (over 20 years) in health problems among middle-aged people who began intensive exercise too abruptly. These problems ranged from heart trouble to tissue damage.

The moral?
Don't push yourself too far, too fast. Go slowly and live longer!
