  • We all need it.

  • We don't all get it.

  • There are guidelines for how much we should exercise.

  • The U.

  • S.

  • Department of Health and Human Services says.

  • If we're doing moderate aerobic exercise, so think walking, swimming or dancing.

  • We should do at least 2.5 hours of it per week.

  • If we're doing vigorous exercise like jogging, swimming laps or mountain biking will need at least an hour and 15 minutes a week, and that should all be spread out across the week.

  • The government also recommends strength training at least twice a week and working all major muscle groups when we do.

  • But it might do it better then if you're doing the regular low interval training.

  • But here's a rule of thumb that you should remember.

  • Your maximum heart rate is typically 220 minus your age.

  • So for me, that's right around 170.

  • You don't wanna let the exercise that you do really get over that range.

  • First of all, it's potentially dangerous.

  • Second of all, you're probably not getting the benefits of exercise as much as you otherwise would.
