How Often Should You Be Exercising?

American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) recently came out with a recommendation for how often you should be exercising. The following are the guidelines.
 For Weight Maintenance: Aim for 150 – 250 Minutes a week (2.5 – 4 Hours a week)  
  • Sample Schedule:
    • Up to 1 hour 4x a week
    • 30 minutes every day
For Weight Loss: 150 – 420 minutes a week (2.5 – 7 hours a week)
  • Sample Schedule:
    • 1 hour every day 
    • 30 Minutes twice a day everyday 
For better weight loss results, all exercise programs are best when combined with a slight caloric reduction.
