To improve overall health, it is recommended to engage in at least 150 to 200 minutes of zone two cardio per week. Zone two cardio is essential for cardiovascular and cerebrovascular health, as well as other aspects of health that are important for longevity. Zone two cardio does not have to be scheduled as a separate exercise session and can be incorporated into daily activities, such as taking brisk walks, pacing while taking work calls, or running errands. Engaging in zone two cardio does not impede other types of fitness activities and can even enhance strength training, high-intensity workouts, and other cardiovascular training. It is crucial to prioritize getting at least 200 minutes of zone two cardio per week, as it has numerous health benefits without sacrificing sleep, social connections, or work productivity.
