General exercise guidelines

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

Keeping healthy requires work in many different areas. We advise on how to keep track of it all in this week's Neighborhood Health Watch.

Exercise is the first thing- and Dr. Mark Caligtan warns not to jump into it.

Adults should perform moderate intensity aerobic activity at least 30 minutes, five times a week for a total of 150 minutes weekly.

There is strong evidence that exercise lowers the risk of coronary artery disease, diabetes and stroke.

Consult you primary care doctor prior to starting a regular exercise routine.
