How much is enough ?
Everyone knows exercise is good, but do you really know how much you need?
Exercise is good for health could be the most common argument in 2019, but it’s a bit of a vague term. Because it doesn’t really tell us how much time we should be spending every week for training. Some people out there just loooove training (like myself here) and probably train as much as they physically can as much as their schedule allows of course. This article is for people who prefer to be sipping a beer instead of training.
The American Heart Association recommends at least 150 minutes of moderate
intensity physical activity a week 1. That breaks down to at least 30 minutes per day, five times a week. And why do they recommend it again? Oh right: It significantly reduces the chance of suffering from heart disease, stroke, type II Diabetes which if you take a moment to think about affects at least one person you know closely. On top of all, Stay healthier, feel stronger and live longer. Have more energy to do the things you love. Manage stress. Be a great role model for those in your life. Get in shape for the season of shorts and tank tops. 2 I can hear
some of you saying, Ohh I don’t want to live forever I want to go when it’s my time. Well, guess what, it’s not just living forever it’s living that amount of time with the highest quality possible, without struggling to carry shopping bags at old age, taking the stairs without the fear of falling down. Let’s break that 150 minutes moderate exercise down. You can shorten that time by exercising more vigorously: The alternate recommendation is at least 75 minutes of vigorous exercise per week. Examples being, running/jogging, racquetball or tennis, swimming laps, biking up a hill, basketball, inline skating at a brisk pace and Fitstyler group training. The last one being my addition and rest belongs to the American Heart Association. At least twice a week, attending Fitstyler sessions would meet AHA requirements; and three times would be a great investment for our health and making sure we have a life policy for old age. Fitstyler sessions in North Fitzroy focuses on cardiovascular endurance, core strength and stability, functional movements and strength to make sure our clients are complete, feel comfortable with daily life activities and know they
