Exercise Basic Chapter 7


Daily Exercise Requirements

Exercise physiologists and physicians recommend that most people get at least 30 minutes of exercise per day. Depending on your fitness level and other personal factors, you should be able to get a balance of aerobic and Anaerobic activities if you devote half an hour every day. Making a habit of setting aside time for exercise is important, because the practice becomes part of your routine. With so many factors keeping us sedentary—desk jobs, driving, television and computer screens—the daily exercise habit is more important than ever.
