A recent study indicates that "exercising" on weekends may have its own health benefits. Exercises that meet the activity guidelines are likely to work even if done only twice every week.

According to a report, those who exercise on weekends at the right amount of time are less likely to have their health to deteriorate. It is also reported that a 75 minute rigorous exercise or 150 minutes moderate exercise per week is recommended by the World Health Organization.

This new study has found that a "weekend exercise" can be more beneficial to a person's health. It lowers the risk of mortality. However, it is always best to keep exercises whatever the body needs. It is also indicated in the report that an activity of the body is better than none at all.

A daily exercise still works and has its own health benefits according to a report. However, it also works for those who exercise only on weekends as long as the time spent exercising is the exact amount of time needed for the body.

The research was done in three categories, those who are inactive, those who exercise regularly and those who exercise only on weekends. There has been a significant decrease of 30 percent mortality rate for those who exercise regularly than the inactive ones. However a 35 percent rate is shown for those who exercise on weekends. This also means that having to exercise on weekends is better than being inactive.

Meanwhile, it is reported that there is no right or wrong schedule as to when to exercise. Each one has different time frame each day. The end goal is to be able to exercise at a right speed and time in order to get the health benefits for being active.

The exercises that are recommended also must be in line with ones goals. It can be a moderate one or a rigorous one. The way on how to do exercise may not matter as long as the goal of exercising is achieved.
