The recommendations are:
• At least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity 5 days per week for a total of 150 minutes,
• At least 25 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity at least 3 days per week for a total of 74 minutes,
• Moderate-to-high intensity muscle-strengthening activity at least 2 days per week for additional health benefits.
So that’s why even though you’re at Personally Fit 3 days a week, we also encourage aerobic exercise on your non-gym days as well, to make sure you get up to these recommendations.
Remember: something is always better than nothing!
More heart health hints:
Stand two to five minutes each hour.
Sitting for an extended period of time is terrible for your heart. Stand while making phone calls or watching commercials. Set a timer to get up each hour – the more standing the better!
Make your food dollars count when buying organic.
Stretch your budget by only buying organic fruits and vegetables most likely to contain pesticide residue: apples, celery, cherry tomatoes, collard greens, cucumbers, grapes, kale, nectarines, peaches, potatoes, spinach, strawberries, and bell peppers.
