Consumer Report on Health

A recent (3/2017) issue of the Consumer Reports on Health supports the finding that physical activity helps keep your heart and lungs working well, reduces the risk of several illnesses and may reduce pain. The CDC says that’s what’s most helpful is 5 hours a week of moderate activity (such as brisk walking) or 2.5 hours a week of vigorous exercise (such as jogging), along with resistance training (such as lifting weights) that works the major muscle groups at least twice a week. If you are now somewhat inactive, start with 10 minutes of activity several times a day and work your way up to a more challenging schedule.

 

These recommendations come with the advice you get your doctor’s okay before beginning an exercise program.
