What’s your intensity?

Posted 05/07/2012 | By HealthCorps

There  are  varying  degrees  of  exercise  intensity.  Light-­intensity  activities,  like  cooking  or  shopping, don’t require much effort.  Moderate-intensity activities like a brisk walk or a 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  than  your  peers.
