Why you should "MOOVE" it

You need to incorporate regular activity into your weekly schedule that gets you moving and provides some level of stimulation to your cardiovascular system.  These activities should involve sustained, rhythmic movements that increase your heart rate and breathing. This includes activities such as brisk walking, jogging, cycling, swimming, and dancing. 

There are numerous benefits to participating in these activities, including improved cardiovascular health and endurance, lower blood pressure, better circulation, blood sugar regulation, improved sleep, weight management, stronger immune system, improved brain power, improved mood, reduced risk of falls, and more!
Experts recommend getting at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise, or 75 minutes of vigorous activity each week. Brisk walking or swimming are examples of moderate activity. Running or cycling are examples of vigorous activity.
So if you are running or cycling, fitting in three 25 minute sessions, or two 40 minutes sessions, would be enough. If you are doing a moderate activity (like walking) then you would need the equivalent of five 30 minutes sessions. These could even be broken up into two 15 minute walks per day if you don't have the time or energy for longer sessions.
If you are using the MooveMix app and you choose HIIT & Cardio as part of your customized plan, you will have a "Moove it" activity into your week, once per week, as well as a HIIT session and a longer cardio session (Extend It!!). All of these count towards your cardio quota. And if you want to turn this session into a HIIT session as well, you can.
For you "Moove It!!" session, choose from activities like:
  • Running
  • Biking
  • Rowing
  • Walking
  • Swimming
  • Stair Climbing
Or any of the HIIT activities mentioned in the post about why your should "HIIT it":  Why, When and How you should HIIT it

For less vigorous activities (like walking), go for longer or add more sessions during the week.
