Push-ups and sit-ups

pushup

As the new year approaches thoughts will center on resolutions and one that tends to be popular is exercise.  Here’s some info from the CDC that may be of benefit.

Only one in five U.S. adults gets the recommended amount of physical activity, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Just over half of adults report getting the recommended aerobic activity and about 30% the recommended muscle-strengthening activity, based on the 2011 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System survey, conducted by state health departments. The Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommend that adults get at least 2.5 hours a week of moderate aerobic activity such as walking, or 75 minutes of more vigorous aerobic activity. The guidelines also recommend muscle-strengthening activities such as push-ups or sit-ups at least two days a week.

It takes a little work to stay healthy!!!  Get moving…
