How Long to Exercise: Workout Duration

How Long to Exercise For?

Optimum Length of Workouts

Like exercise-frequency, the length of your training workout is determined by your physical condition and fitness goals. Recent research shows that aerobic fitness levels can improve with as little as 10 minutes duration - provided exercise is performed often: meaning, 2-3 times a day, 5 days a week. So for example, you may divide up a 30-minute workout into 3 separate 10-minute exercise-routines. If a single exercise session is preferred, exercising for 30 minutes is an optimal exercise-period for many people. If your goal is weight loss, and you are in reasonable physical condition, then 40-60 minute workouts are best.

Guidelines on How Long to Exercise

On September 5, 2002 the Institute of Medicine released a lengthy new report recommending that, as part of a routine regimen to maintain cardiovascular health, we should all engage in 60 minutes of daily vigorous physical activity. If this exercise advice sounds excessive, it reflects the growing importance that doctors are placing on the link between health, obesity and physical activity.

Warm-Up and Cool-Down Routines

To reduce the risk of injury when exercising, it's important to spend a minimum of 5 minutes on warming up exercises before starting an aerobic workout and a further 5 minutes cooling down, afterwards. 10 minutes on these warm-ups and cooling down exercises is even better. This type of exercise really does help to prevent strains and pulled muscles.
