What is the right amount of exercise?
The amount that lets you be active every day.
But I don’t know.
I enjoy pushing myself a little extra.
Call me weird, but I like that sore feeling the day after a hard day of weights.
My system for staying in the mood to be active every day has several parts. I already explained the importance of diet in keeping your energy up. After that, the most important rule is that you should never exercise so much in one day that you won’t feel like being active the next day. To put that another way, the right amount of exercise today is whatever amount makes me look forward to being active tomorrow.
