These activities may cause a minor increase in breathing and heart rate. The fitness pyramid illustrates how a person’s day should be spent.
  • Decrease activities such as watching TV or sitting at the computer.
  • Strength training exercises should be done at least 2-3 days a week on 8-10 different muscles per day.
