Recommendations

To maintain cardiovascular health, the American College of Sports Medicine recommends getting at least 30 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise on five or more days per week, or at least 20 minutes of vigorous exercise on three or more days per week. You can receive the same health benefits breaking up the total amount of exercise into bouts of as little as 10 minutes, as long as you accumulate the recommended total number of hours.
