Many medical professionals follow the World Health Organization's recommendation of at least 150 minutes a week of moderate exercise or 75 minutes a week of vigorous exercise for adults.
However, their recommendation is only an arbitrary prescription because the exercise an individual need depends on many factors such as age, injury history, and other health concerns.
Regardless, no matter how unfit you are, even a little exercise goes a long way and it's better than none.
