It is recommended that all adults avoid inactivity. Some physical activity is better than none, and adults who participate in any amount of physical activity gain some health benefits.
For substantial benefits, adults are encouraged to get at least 150 minutes of moderate physical activity a week, or approximately 30 minutes a day. Only about 50 percent of men regularly meet these requirements, so here are a few ideas to get you moving:
