How much exercise is required in a day?
- 5 Months ago
A study published in the International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity states that a large percentage of Indians are inactive with fewer than 10 % engaging in recreational physical activity. According to WHO, individuals should perform at least 150 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity per week for maintaining good health.
In India, at present, more than half of the population does not meet these recommendations. Moreover, individuals appear to get most of their physical activity from their occupational domains. When it comes to physical activity, even few minutes of it is considered better than nothing at all.
