How Much And Often Should You Work Out?
Ideally, at least 30 minutes a day, at least five days a week for moderate-intensity activities like brisk walking, running, swimming, cycling, playing tennis, and jumping rope. If you’re just getting started, you can gradually build up to that – in time, you can make your workouts longer or more challenging.
This, of course, can vary, depending on your health condition, preferences, and goals.
Remember: Safety First
Brisk walking, running, swimming, cycling, playing tennis, and jumping rope are some examples of good exercise for heart health. If your doctor says you can exercise, pay attention to how you feel while doing so. If you experience pain or pressure in your chest or upper body, break out in a cold sweat, have trouble breathing, or have a very fast or uneven heartbeat, stop and seek emergency medical attention.
When you first start exercising, it’s typical for your muscles to be slightly sore for a day or two afterward. However, this soreness rapidly goes away as your body grows used to it, and soon you might be pleased to discover that you enjoy how you feel afterward.
