Did you know that if you burn an extra 150 calories each day, you can significantly reduce your risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, colon cancer, anxiety and depression? To get an effective workout, you should exercise three to five times per week for at least 20 minutes. Work out at a pace that burns approximately 400 to 600 calories per hour. You should also try to get in at least two strength training exercises for each major muscle group two or three days each week with free weights or stationary lifting equipment. Remember to stretch every major muscle group for 20 to 60 seconds before and after each workout to reduce risk of injury.
