Recommended Physical Activity Guidelines for Adults

The NHS recommends that an adult (19 - 64 years) should complete 150 minutes of moderate physical activity a week - it is suggested this could be completed in 30 minute intervals, five times a week. Moderate intensity exercise could include activities such as brisk walking or cycling. It is also recommended to complete strength exercises on at least two days a week.
