Aim for at least 150 minutes a week of moderate physical activity or 75 minutes a week of vigorous aerobic activity. Keep in mind that you may need more physical activity to lose weight. While even the most intensely calorie-burning chores can’t replace structured exercise completely, every little bit of activity helps, especially when you’re unable to participate in your normal workout activities. The key is to try to do a little each day to see and feel maximum results.
