In addition to cardio, doing two strength-training exercises per week is also recommended.

Consistent exercise has a wide range of benefits, some that you might not even realize. Staying physically active helps stabilize your mental health, increase bone and muscle strength, prevent arthritic issues, improve sleep, increase life longevity, decrease risk of disease, and boost self-confidence.
