Fitting Those Workouts Into Your Daily Routine

September 16, 2002|Jane E. Allen

The Institute of Medicine recommends an hour of "moderate intensity" exercise each day for good health and keeping your weight stable. Here are some ways to meet that threshold:

* 60 minutes of brisk walking every day at a 4 mph pace.

* 15-minute walks twice during the workday, such as during a coffee break and during lunch, plus a 30-minute walk with family members in the evening.

* 30 minutes of high-intensity exercise such as jogging, running or biking four to seven times a week.
