Physical Activity Guidelines - So how much exercise should we be doing?

The Department of Health have devised scientifically informed Physcial Activity Guidelines to help policy makers, health professionals and individuals to understand how to reduce the risk of ill health associated with inactivity and sedentary behaviours.

The Guidelines have been created specific to different life stages to inform individuals on how much physical activity they should be doing. Full guidelines are at the bottom of the page, but why not view the infographs below for more of a snapshot of the headline recommendations.
