How Hard Should You Exercise?

Rate This

If you are exercising to lose weight and get in great shape, make sure you are working hard enough that you can carry on a conversation and be able to say three or four words at once without taking a breath, but you shouldn't be able to sing. If you're just trying to stay healthy, you don't have to work as hard, but you do want to break a sweat.
