do 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity each week to stay healthy and prevent weight gain. The ACSM also recommends adults who want to lose weight do more than 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity for modest weight loss each week and more than 250 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity for significant weight loss each week.


It is important to incorporate a combination of cardio and strength training exercises. Cardio exercises will help you burn more calories. The strength training will burn fewer calories, but it will help you stay toned. Be sure to pace yourself. Start your exercise regimen slowly and progress from there to prevent injuries and burnout. One of the best ways to increase your intensity is to do intervals. Intervals consist of brief bursts of high intensity, followed by a more moderate pace. You can try doing intervals throughout your workout to help build endurance and take you to the next level.
