Did you know that the weekly recommended activity for ADL (Active Daily Living) is 150 minutes of moderate to intense activity per week? It is important to schedule time in your day at least 3 to 5 times a week to meet that requirement. So how long does this mean you have to workout? Should you workout until you break a sweat? What if you don't sweat? Are you still working out as hard as someone who sweats easily?

To answer these questions that have a majority of most exercisers stumped, here's a simple rule of thumb. You should aim for 30 to 60 minutes of moderate to intense exercise a week. As you exercise do not fixate on how much your sweating as you do any activity. The sweat factor is a scientific one not a "If I sweat I must be working really hard and burning more calories". Your body produces sweat as the internal core temperature rises, you then sweat as a natural mechanism to cool the body down and regulate the overall body temperature to get it back to normal. So keep it simple for yourself and "Let's Get Moving."
