Only One in Five Adults Get Enough Exercise

…according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. I hope my regular readers here are doing better than that!

Here’s the goal from MedPageToday:

The guidelines call for adults to engage in these forms of activity, outside of work, at the following levels:

  • Aerobic: at least 150 minutes/week of moderate-intensity, 75 minutes/week of vigorous exercise, or a combination of the two such that, by multiplying the duration of vigorous activity in minutes by two, the total is at least 150 minutes/week
  • Muscle-strengthening: at least two episodes of such activity per week

I’m not convinced that much is really necessary.
