How long should someone workout? Have you ever heard of the saying that sometimes less is more? Well, when it comes to fitness, health &wellness that is actually true. Moderation is important when trying to stay in good health. The consensus is to aim minimally for 30 minutes of moderate exercise for any type of fitness workout.

The American Heart Association recommends walking 150 minutes a week just to maintain a healthy heart. Brisk walking just a couple times a week is something anybody can incorporate in their daily routine.

 If you have specific goals in mind like losing weight or gaining lean muscle mass or anything specific, you may have to increase the 30 minutes a day frequency. It is so important to move and be active and not sit for extended periods of time. Sitting for prolonged periods of time or living a sedentary lifestyle puts you at elevated risk for a lot of health-related diseases.

So, there are so many different forms of cardio workout activity you can do such as swimming, biking, gardening, walking, stair climbing, running, yoga, aerobics dancing. You can do that for 3 days a week for 30 minutes a day minimally. And then incorporating some form of weight-training at least 2 to 3 days a week and hitting every major body part. And the goal should be anywhere between 10 to 15 repetitions per set for at least 3 sets.

Strength-Training can be bodyweight workouts, resistance bands, heavy bags or weight-lifting machines or dumbbells. Any of those will work when it comes to resistance fitness level workouts. Some of the best workouts you can ever do are the short burst workouts that push your heart and cardiovascular in 20 minutes or less.

When you do not have a limited amount of time to workout it forces you to be very efficient. And use it every minute with minimal rest to work the body as those are the best workouts. So, if you just have 20 minutes to do a workout because you do not have time in that day; that 20 minutes can be the best workout you will ever do if you use every minute wisely, efficiently and with higher intensity. Your long-term health will always be predicated on making any exercise a day a regular staple in your life.
