Research suggests there’s an ideal amount of physical activity that helps you live longer.

➡️The U.S Department of Health and Human Services’ current physical activity guidelines recommend that each week, adults get 150-300 minutes of moderate physical activity or 75-150 minutes of vigorous physical activity.

➡️Moderate physical activity like walking, weightlifting and lower intensity exercise.

➡️Vigorous activity like running, bicycling and swimming.

Or a combo!


Those who worked out 2-4x beyond the minimum recommendations lived longer.

❤️This study suggested strength training beyond just cardio.

Recommending 2-3x per week strength training helping to…

✅Increase muscle mass

✅Maintain and increase bone strength

✅Maintain and increase balance

By doing strength training twice per week you will be well on your way to achieving the minimum workout guidelines!
