When it comes to exercise, many people are confused about the amount they actually need to be doing. Recent statistics show that more than 60% of Australian adults are overweight or obese, which poses serious health risks for the population. Clearly, we need to exercise more and make exercise a priority – but it’s hard when you’re unsure as to how much exercise you actually need to be doing. The guidelines can be confusing, and they seem to change on a regular basis – but the underlying principles remain the same. There’s a certain benchmark of exercise that every Australian adult needs to be doing, which will give you a whole range of health benefits that will improve almost every aspect of your life.
