Most people know that moderate exercise is great for your health. But according to research, surprisingly few of us know exactly what “moderate exercise” means. Gretchen Reynolds of the New York Times writes: “An instructive new study in PLOS One found that many of us underestimate how hard we should exercise to achieve maximum health benefits, and overestimate how vigorously we are actually working out.” So how much exercise should we really be getting? According to the United States Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, adults should engage in at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity per week, or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity aerobic exercise per week, in order to enjoy the significant health benefits they’re after.
