Here's a simple rule to follow: Never go more than two days without some form of planned physical activity.
Housework does not count. I'm talking about activity that can be measured so you can track your progress over time.
Seven to 14 minutes of resistance training and 30-40 minutes of brisk walking is best. That's it.
Just don't skip more than two days between workouts. After that you quickly lose cardiovascular condition. You will keep your muscle, but you will begin to lose the neurological connection to the muscle - the "mind/muscle connection."
