Just 150 minutes a week

Keep exercising.The experts advise spending 150 minutes a week taking a brisk walk—or doing some other kind of moderate intensity aerobic exercise. Plus, they advise us to do twice-weekly muscle strengthening.

Research “paper after paper after paper shows that the most effective, potent way we can improve life and duration of life is exercise,” says Dr. Mark Tarnopolsky, a genetic metabolic neurologist, in the cover story in the September 19 issue of Time magazine.

What are the benefits of exercise? According to the experts Time consulted, the benefits include slower aging, better mood, less chronic pain and stronger vision.

Sounds like good news, doesn’t it? The sad news is that only 20 percent of Americans get 150 minutes of strength and cardiovascular activity a week. And, more than half of all baby boomers do no exercise at all.
