Experts recommend a minimum of 30 minutes of moderate exercise (like brisk walks) most days of the week for improved health but-even 15 minutes a day has proven to help reduce the risk of obesity. A recent study known as The Bristol University Children of the 90's simply increased activity levels of 12 yr olds for only 15 minutes a day and showed a 50% reduction in obesity in boys and 40% in girls.
The key is regularity more than intensity or duration. Once you create a habit of daily exercise, your chances of increasing the intensity and duration drastically improves -and, so does the probability of a leaner, healthier, stronger body.
