On a journey to a healthier lifestyle, we often will say to ourselves, “I’m going to workout more.” Yet, how much exercise is necessary to achieve the health benefits we are looking for? The American Heart Association recommends that for overall cardiorespiratory fitness, the average person should workout out for 30 minutes at moderate intensity 5 days a week for a total of 150 minutes a week. This could include going for a jog, participating in a sport you love, riding a bike, or a Fitness Inspired boot-camp workout (my personal fav!). The AHA also suggests that 2 of those days should include Moderate- to high-intensity muscle-strengthening activity. Muscle strengthening is anything that makes your muscles work, so that could include lifting weights, using resistance bands, performing body weight exercises, etc. For even more extensive health benefits, the Athletics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA) actually suggests doubling the 150-minute recommendation to 300 minutes a week, making your workouts a little longer.
