Beyond the Exercise Guidelines

Tuesday, 04 September 2018 04:27 PM Current | Bio | Archive

In my opinion, the 150 minutes a week exercise guideline is too easy. You should strive to go beyond that.

Obviously, if you’ve been sedentary or have medical issues, consult your doctor first.

But if not, 300 minutes a week is more like it. Include a variety of activities, such as strength training and stretching as well.

One practice I’ve found successful is walking 10,000 steps, preferably continuously, each day. This is a reasonable goal.

There are many types of devices that will help you track your steps, ranging from a wristband to your smartphone.

Once you start tracking steps, you may be surprised at how little you are actually walking.

Challenge your spouse or a friend to do the same, and make it into a friendly competition. Once you get started, you might find this habit addictive — I did.
