In brief: Daily

Develop a routine that you enjoy with a variety of different activities and do them at an intensity that doesn't make you too sore to do it again the next day.
Then add 1. 1 more rep, one more minute, one more cycle every day. Start at 15 minutes and work up to 45 minutes to an hour daily.

I think it is best to start every other day to allow for muscle healing and minimize soreness. Each week the activity should be increased by 10-15% The key to increasing actvity is to listen to your body everybody is different
