WHO Exercise Guidelines

In order to improve cardiorespiratory and muscular fitness, bone health, reduce the risk of NCDs and depression:

1. Adults aged 18–64 should do at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity throughout the week or do at least 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity throughout the week or an equivalent combination of moderate- and vigorous-intensity activity.

2. Aerobic activity should be performed in bouts of at least 10 minutes duration. For additional health benefits, adults should increase their moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity to 300 minutes per week, or engage in 150 minutes of vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity per week, or an equivalent combination of moderate- and vigorous-intensity activity.

3. Muscle-strengthening activities should be done involving major muscle groups on 2 or more days a week.

[...]

Overall, strong evidence demonstrates that compared to less active adult men and women, individuals who are more active:

have lower rates of all-cause mortality, coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, colon and breast cancer, and depression; are likely to have less risk of a hip or vertebral fracture; exhibit a higher level of cardiorespiratory and muscular fitness; and are more likely to achieve weight maintenance, have a healthier body mass and composition.
