During the month of May, we challenge all adults to get active every day! Regular physical activity increases your chances of living a longer, healthier life, while reducing your risk for high blood pressure, heart disease, and some types of cancer.
The Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommend that adults:
Aim for at least 2 hours and 30 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity each week.
This includes things like walking fast, dancing, swimming, and raking leaves.
Do muscle-strengthening activities – like lifting weights or using exercise bands – at least 2 days a week.
