Chapter 12 Lesson 1 Benefits of Physical Activity
It's important to know what kind of physical activities are most beneficial to you. Ideally, you should choose activities that raise your heart rate to an intensity of at least 3.0 METs, or the equivalent of 30 minutes of exercise 4 to 5 days per week. This intensity can be light, moderate, or vigorous. Try to incorporate a variety of activities into your routine. Signing up for a fitness class can help you stay committed to your workouts.
