Seems like the American College of Sports Medicine just gave us new guidelines recently, didn’t they? Well now they have upped the ante. Instead of 30 minutes a day 5 days a week, we should be getting in 50 minutes a day, particularly if you want to lose weight. And not exercise of the doing laundry, mopping the floors variety.
You can break up the exercise, but you should do a minimum of 10 minutes at a time at a level that keeps your heart rate elevated.
More than 250 minutes a week showed to have significant effects on weight loss.
An additional 2 days a week of full body strength training is also recommended. This should be a wakeup call to people that we need to move a lot more in any given day.
You would think that with my current exercise regimen, I would be dropping weight like a stone. Funny how that works, isn’t it?
