I get asked this question on a weekly basis… How often should I exercise?
There are so many things to consider when answering this question.
- What is the goal of the individual?
- How much time can the individual realistically and consistently allocate to training?
- Age is a huge factor to consider when asking how often should one exercise.
And so on…
The government guidelines recommend that people exercise for 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity per week. It is also suggested that at least 2 days of resistance training should be incorporated to support muscle preservation and reduction of bone disease.
How often should I exercise?
Remember though… this is just a guideline and every case is personal to that individuals goals and needs.
We must take into consideration diet especially when the goal is to reduce body fat/weight.
Adhering to the governments exercise suggestions maybe okay for some…
But for others, a calorie controlled diet and strict training regime may be necessary.
If you need help with this, drop me a message or email and we can set up a call.
Have a lovely Christmas.
