Do you really need to work out almost every single day? In a perfect world, says WebMD guest expert Henry S. Lodge, MD. Exercising six days a week really can be great for your fitness and energy. But if you can only get moving four days a week, that's good, too.
One WebMD community member says she started out exercising just seven minutes a day, six days a week. She's worked her way up to 15-25 minutes of exercise a day. Having the seventh day off is like a reward, she says. Another member says he's been working out 5-6 days a week for 45 years! He said that exercise has just become an easy part of his routine.
How often do you exercise? Is it hard to do or part of your routine?
