Several highly respected agencies publish recommended physical activity guidelines for the healthy adult, including the American College of Sports Medicine and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Each of these recommends at least two types of physical activity each week to improve health- aerobic and muscle strengthening.
Using the ACSM Guidelines, participants are challenged to meet the minimum criteria for healthy adults in at least two of three categories (aerobic/cardio, resistance/strength, & flexibility). Earn & record 20 total points between Monday, May 11 – Sunday, July 19 for a great MBU gear prize!
