Keep Up The Cardio
- Posted on June 27, 2012
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, adults need at least two and a half hours moderate-intensity or one hour and fifteen minutes of high-intensity aerobic activity every week (in addition to strength training).
Challenge: For the first week, record how much aerobic exercise you are currently getting. Each week, try to increase your time from the week before by at least 20 percent. For example, if you jogged and mowed the lawn for a total of 5 hours last week, try to do about six hours the next week. You have completed the challenge if your total aerobic exercise increases each week of the month.
