Fitness Tips: Exercise regularly and with variety

1. The American College of Sports Medicine speaks about quantity and quality of exercise. Studies show that participating in 150 minutes of exercise each week is beneficial to healthy living. Time can be broken down into 10- to 60-minute sessions and split between different categories such as cardiorespiratory, resistance, and stretching.

Disclaimer: Always consult your physician before beginning any exercise program to make sure you are healthy enough to do so.

2. The American College of Sports Medicine recommends exercising each major muscle group two to three days per week when working with resistance training. Always choose exercises appropriate for your age and activity level, using fewer repetitions to increase strength and more repetitions to increase muscular endurance. To reduce chance of injury or strain, allow 48 hours between resistive training sessions.
