How often should you exercise?

Text Size:

You should find time for physical activity most days of the week. The U.S. Surgeon General recommends doing 30 minutes of moderate-intensity activity (that makes you feel warm and slightly out of breath) 5–7 days per week. The activity can be done in one bout of 30 minutes or accumulated in two 15-minute bouts or three 10-minute bouts.
