With exercise amount matters, not frequency

Doing 150 minutes of exercise is just as good for you all in one go as it is broken up into several sessions each week, researchers from Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario, Canada have reported.

For example, someone who performed no physical activity on Monday to Friday but was active for 150 minutes over the weekend would obtain the same health benefits from their activity as someone who accumulated 150 minutes of activity over the week by doing 20-25 minutes of activity on a daily basis.

So dont beat yourself up if you miss a session or two during the week, just do more at the weekend.

Remember, those that exercise have less back and neck pain than those who do not.
