Don’t stop till you get enough

By Meeghan, 5 May, 2009

My clients often ask me how much exercise they should be doing. It’s a really difficult question as there are lots of different models with varying recommendations. However one model that caught my eye recently was the physical activity guidelines from the American College of Sports Medicine and the American Heart Association.

For healthy adults under age 65 the basic recommendations are; Moderate intense cardio 30mins, 5 days a week or Vigorous intense cardio 20mins, 3 days a week and, 2 x Strength Training sessions every week.

It should be noted to lose weight more physical activity may be necessary! Especially if you’re not watching your food intake. Are you doing enough?
