Hey There! 😀
Today I want to talk about a topic that I’ve been seeing a lot recently. Phrases like over and under training have been floating around in countless articles and blog posts it got me thinking…
How much exercise do we need?
I try to exercise whenever my schedule permits. I add gym and running time into my schedule and try my best to follow through.
I know a lot of people also allot gym time this way but I’ve got a question for you:
How much exercise to you add to your schedule every week?
Do you workout once a week and be done with it? Do you workout for an hour and a half everyday except Sundays?
What guidelines do you follow for how often, how long or how much you exercise?
I never looked at it that way. I just tried to get to the gym whenever I had time and the more often the better! 😉
So I went searching for some stats on how much exercise we need and found this article by the American College of Sport Medicine.
It’s goes a little more in-depth into the quality and quantity of exercise that we need, but today’s workout Wednesday Infographic covers a few of the important topics.
What about you?
How much exercise do you get every week?
How did you come up with your routine?

I liked how they put ballroom dancing under moderate cardio but failed to identify a dance form for vigorous lol but i think i have something in mind lol
Good catch! For vigorous dancing I would say hip hop or dancehall…but you know that already 😉 lol

There may be too little fitness in our lives. But there can also be too much exercise. And I don’t even know what’s worse. I have a few friends fitness fanatics who literally live in the gym. And I don’t think it’s healthy.
Finding a balance and doing the activity you enjoy is the best solution for a healthy lifestyle.
This blog was very useful for me. Thankyou for providing such useful fitness tip.
