Aerobics (also known as cardio) may be done almost anyplace and requires little or no equipment. Always warm-up before doing any form of workout to avoid injuries.
Aim for 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity per week (meaning you can talk while working) or 75 minutes of strenuous exercise per week.
To get you started, here are some aerobic exercise examples.
Start easy and alternate walking and running for 1 minute at a time if you’re new to running – and don’t forget to cool down and stretch! At the beginning, aim for shorter sessions a couple of times a week, then gradually increase the number of sessions as you gain strength. Do it twice or three times a week for 20–60 minutes.
