LESS is MORE? The AHA Says so...
“Basic recommendations from The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and American Heart Association (AHA):
2. Do vigorously intense cardio 20 minutes a day, 3 days a week.
3. Do eight to 10 strength-training exercises, eight to 12 repetitions of each exercise twice a week.
Moderate-intensity physical activity means working hard enough to raise your heart rate and break a sweat, yet still being able to carry on a conversation. It should be noted that to lose weight or maintain weight loss, 60 to 90 minutes of physical activity may be necessary. The 30-minute recommendation is for the average healthy adult to maintain health and reduce the risk for chronic disease.”
30 minutes x 5 days = 150 minutes
20 minutes x 3 days = 60 minutes.
SO STOP WASTING YOUR TIME. CRANK UP THE INTENSITY!!
