How often do you exercise?
It’s recommended that you move your body three times a week, for thirty minutes at a time. Not only does it help maintain a healthy weight, but it assists with your mental health, sleep, and recovery.
Your body needs to move, and you’re responsible for making it happen. If you’re new to working out, take it slow and start with walks. Turn those walks into runs, then sneak in some squats and crunches, and you’ve got yourself one heck of a workout.
No matter where you’re at in your fitness journey, 30 minutes 3x a week is doable and effective.
Here are a few reasons we live by the 30 x 3 rule at diet & health, and how you can get started today!
It fits every schedule
Oftentimes, we decide not to exercise because of the time commitment. Maybe you just don’t have an hour to spare! We understand, which is a huge reason we follow the 30 x 3 rule.
Whether your schedule is filled with drop-offs and pickups, a 60-hour workweek, or all kids, all the time – you can find 30 minutes. Whether those 30 minutes are at the park, the beach, or on the floor of your bedroom, you and your body need and deserve the time. Fit in a workout wherever and whenever you can!
That’s the beauty of a 30-minute workout, it fits your schedule when you need it to!
Working out 3x a week gives your body time to recover, while keeping it moving helps you recover FASTER. It’s a win-win!
When you’re consistent with your workouts, you stimulate your muscles, and when you properly recover, you’re more energized and prepared for your next workout. Make both workouts and recovery a part of your lifestyle – and you’ll never look back.
Improve your overall health
As we already mentioned, regular exercise helps maintain a healthy weight, assists with your mental health, sleep, and recovery. It’s essential to your overall health.
Exercise helps deliver both oxygen and nutrients to your tissues while helping your cardiovascular system work efficiently. When your heart and lung health improve, you have more energy and better overall health.
Need more convincing? Exercise is important, and doing it regularly is key. Make moving your body a habit, not a task – it’ll make you happier, healthier, and your body will seriously thank you.
Remember – start slow, and find something you love! You’ll be hooked in no time.
