IS SIX TOO MANY? Estimates for the minimum weekly amount of exercise required to maintain or improve one’s health vary from a low of 20 minutes, three times a week, to as much as one hour every day of at least moderate intensity. All I can say about that low end is, it would have to be a 20-minute freight train at full throttle to even hope to see any real results, and I still don’t think you’d get much.
