The WHO recommendations, as most commonly heard, suggest 150mins of weekly of moderate intensity or 75mins of vigorous exercise (increasing to 300mins and 150mins respectively for extra benefits)
Their recommendations also include 2 muscle-strengthening sessions involving major muscle groups per week too.
These moderate and intense exercise bouts can be set and completed in a myriad of different ways. Our advice is to pick some form of exercise that you enjoy doing, walking, hillwalking, running, cycling, swimming etc.
If you don’t think you have time for that then there’s also some recent research over the last few years showing similar benefits with HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training). We’ll delve deeper into the different types next.
