How much physical activity do you need? Here are the American Heart Association recommendations for adults.
Fit in 150+
- Get at least 150 minutes per week of moderate-intensity aerobic activity or 75 minutes per week of vigorous aerobic activity (or a combination of both), preferably spread throughout the week.
- Move More, Sit Less
- Get up and move throughout the day. Any activity is better than none. Even light-intensity activity can offset the serious health risks of being sedentary.
- Add Intensity
- Moderate to vigorous aerobic exercise is best. Your heart will beat faster, and you’ll breathe harder than normal. As you get used to being more active, increase your time and/or intensity to get more beneﬁts.
- Add Muscle
- Include moderate- to high-intensity muscle-strengthening activity (like resistance or weight training) at least twice a week.
