An exercise program includes more than just your daily activity. Be sure to warm up before you start and cool down when you're done. Also include exercises to strengthen your muscles 2 or 3 days a week.
Talk to a healthcare provider to learn about the best strength-building exercises for you.
The goal for adults is 150 minutes of aerobic activity per week or about 30 minutes at least 5 days per week. This can be done as 3, 10-minute sessions per day if preferred. Brisk walking, jogging, swimming, and biking are all types of moderate-intensity exercise that can be beneficial.
