How Frequently Should I Exercise?
The Physical Activity Guide (published by the Public Health Agency of Canada) recommends exercise 4-7 times per week for health improvement.
It all depends on what your goals are. If you want to see faster results you will need to increase the number of days and potentially the intensity or duration of your workouts.
If you want to maintain your current fitness level, 3 times per week is great marker to strive for, provided you workout at the same intensity level.
A few of the factors that come into play when creating a fitness program are:
- Amount of available time for exercise
- Desired amount of time for exercise
- Personal goals with time frame
- Current fitness level
