What’s Your Intensity?
There are varying degrees of exercise intensity. Light-intensity activity, like cooking or shopping, doesn’t require much effort. Moderate-intensity activities like a brisk walk or flat bike ride work your heart, lungs and muscles, causing you to sweat. Vigorous intensity activities increase your heart rate enough that you are breathing hard and fast.
Develop a diverse workout this week by incorporating something from every intensity level. Remember that fitness level and abilities varies from person to person, so you may find an exercise to be more or less intense then your peers.
