Explain the weekly activity requirements for adults and what exercises and activities one can do to meet these requirements.
Both vigorous aerobic activity as well as moderate aerobic activity are recommended for adults.
The Department of Health and Human Services recommends the aerobic activity for adults in which at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity a week can be done. It can also be done in a combination of moderate and vigorous activity.
Vigorous aerobic exercise includes activities such as running, heavy yard work and aerobic dancing whereas brisk walking, water aerobics, riding a bike, dancing and doubles tennis are the examples of moderate aerobic exercises that are recommended for adults so we can conclude that both vigorous aerobic activity as well as moderate aerobic activity are recommended for adults.
