How Much Do I Need To Exercise Each Week?

To lose one pound, you need to burn 3,500 calories more than what your body needs. if your goal is to lose one to two pounds a week, you need a deficit of 1,000 calories per day..

The level (weight) of each exercise should be so that you can do 8-12 repetitions before the muscle group gets tired and you have to stop. so, for example, for the upper arm muscles, hold a weight in your hand and bend (flex) your arm up and down 8-12 times. this should make your arm muscles tire. you can use heavier weights and do fewer.

For example, if you used to run 5 miles, you might walk 2.5 miles and add a little more distance each week as you progress to jogging and then running. you also need to take time to warm up before.
