How long should you exercise a day?

Weekly goals. You don't have to exercise every day, and in fact, you need to let your body recover from time to time. Try 20 - 30 minutes of moderately intense exercise a day, 4 or 5 times each week. Make sure you consult your physician before starting a new exercise regiment.
Depends. How old are you? How is your health in general? Are you overweight? If so, how much? All that goes into your "plan" for better health through exercise! for healthy, 20-30 min of moderate aerobic exercise every day is the goal. If you're a kid (under 25) you may need more. If you have diabetes or heart disease you should consult a doctor before you start an exercise program. Hope that helps.

There is no "one answer" to this question. Read more...
