Your workout routine should consist of 30 minutes of aerobic activity most days of the week. If you don’t have 30 minutes continuously to exercise, break workouts into shorter 10- to 15-minute intervals. Brisk walking, cycling, jogging, swimming and stair climbing can be performed as part of your workout routine.
