Our expert says:
There are 2 schools of thought about the frequency of exercise: 1) Some experts recommend that one should do 30 or more min of moderate exercise every day to obtain the max. benefit, others recommend exercising intensively for 60 min every second day to allow the body to replenish its glycogen stores. So if you exercise moderately you can exercise every day (e.g. going for a brisk walk for 30 min), but if you really do very intensive exercise for longer periods then it may be a good idea to have a 24-hour rest. Fat is used up for energy purposes while you exercise and for up to 24 hours after intensive cardio exercise because of an increase in the so-called Basic Metabolic Rate.
