How much cardio exercise should I do a week? (I am 14 years old).

All the bodies are different, but I follow this schedule: strength day, stretching day, cardio day, stretching day, chardio day, streching day, rest day. You can change this according to your body.

If you live and active lifestyle like me (15 years old) and you're involved in sports or other physical activities, I would set aside 3-4 specific workouts just to keep your body moving and stay in shape. If you live a more sedentary lifestyle, I would set aside 4-6 specific workouts and make sure to keep moving throughout the day. You've got this!

No matter how old you are you should try and get at least 30 minutes of activity or more. Try to do cardio at least 3x a week along with strength training.

Start with basics – warmup, stretching fir abt 30mins a day
Then according to your body type and endurance keep incresing the time and pattern of exercise.
For Cardio at your age 25-30 mins a day is more than enough

If I’m not mistaken, the canadian fitness guide suggests 30-60 minutes of cardio at least three days a week. This is pretty general to include for children, seniors, and people with disabilities and full time jobs. I was very active when I was your age, played a lot of different sports and kept busy pretty much every day. I don’t regret this at all and would suggest all people your age to try new sports and keep yourself busy with many different friend groups -you just never know how important a new friendship or sport will become in your life.

If you’re trying to improve your fitness, then a little something each day is optimal. Shoot for 20-40 minutes 5-6 days a week; but also don’t be too hard on yourself if you miss it sometimes. You’re at a very busy age, and time management can also be tricky!

Take your bicycle when possible and do a yoga stretch, and maybe go for a nature walk- it adds up easily when you look for opportunities. You can totally do this; I’m so happy for you to be considering your health at such a young age. I’d love to fast-foward 20 years and see how you’ve made out. You sound very interesting!

Well, it really depends on your health and how advanced you are. If you're new to cardio, don't exercise too much (it will make you more stressed, you won't have lots of energy). I recommend to do cardio about 30 minutes 3 times per week. But this is the AVERAGE. Depending on your possibilities you can change the amount of exercises. Hope this can help you! ^_^

I think it really just comes down to what you feel comfortable with. Back when I was 14 I struggled with weight problems so cardio was very important to me I would usually mountain bike or run at least 2 or 3 miles every other day but find what works for you and what you can handle and work from there

It really depends on the person, but I think that at least 3 times a week is good. It also depends on what your goals are. Are you trying to gain or lose weight? To gain, you should do less cardio and more strength. To lose, do more cardio. Hope this helps

At 14 I was doing it every day. My body developed into a fit,toned person. Confidence follows. Most important is find exercise you enjoy,that's fun both physically and spiritually 😍
