How much physical activity do I need to do?
The Australian Physical Activity Guidelines for people aged 18-64 recommend: 150 to 300 minutes a week of moderately vigorous physical activity (exercise that requires effort, but is not so hard that you cannot talk, such as brisk walking); 75-150 minutes of vigorous physical activity a week (exercise that requires enough effort that you are breathing hard), or; A combination of moderate and vigorous physical activity.
