How many times should you exercise?

Part of our mission here at the Vitamin Patch Club is to help you live a healthier lifestyle. Beyond vitamins, there are a number of elements to being fit and healthy. Things like getting enough sleep, eating a proper diet, and having a consistent exercise routine.

So here’s a common question many people have about exercise:

“How many times should I exercise every week?”

 Well, according to available research, people who exercise between 3 and 5 times a week tend to have the best results. By getting your heart rate up and keeping your body moving at least 3 times a week, you’re giving yourself the best possible chance to stay healthy.

Wether if it's going to a group class for more motivation, joining your local gym or even trying out a HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) According to scientific studies it takes 1 - 2 months to create a new habit. So what are you waiting for? Our  bodies were made to move and feel. 

The important thing to remember is that you need to rest between sets of intense exercise, especially if you’re just starting out. And if you like to exercise a lot, remember to take at least 1 rest day every week, to give your body a chance to recover.

That’s it for today! See you guys next Monday.
