What Is Physical Activity?
Physical activity is any body movement that works your muscles and requires more energy than resting. Some physical activity is better than none but increasing the intensity, frequency and/or duration of workouts leads to greater health benefits and greater quality of life.
There are two types of physical activity: aerobic and muscle strengthening. Both aerobic (endurance) and muscle-strengthening (resistance) activities provide health benefits and you need to get both types each week.
