The figures are averages, so use them as a general guide.

Aerobic activity. Get at least 150 minutes a week of moderate aerobic activity — such as brisk walking, swimming or mowing the lawn — or 75 minutes a week of vigorous aerobic activity — such as running or aerobic dancing. You can also do a combination of moderate and vigorous activity. It’s best to do this over the course of a week.
Working with older adult clients can be hugely rewarding, particularly because regular physical activity can play a crucial role in helping them maintain their independence and perform activities of daily living. Learn about some of the special considerations you need to keep in mind when designing cardio training programs for older adults.Aerobic activity.
Get at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity a week, or a combination of moderate and vigorous activity. The guidelines suggest that you spread out this exercise during the course of a week. Greater amounts of exercise will provide even greater health benefit.
The Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, 2nd edition external icon outlines the amounts and types of physical activity needed to maintain or improve overall health and reduce the risk of chronic disease. It also highlights individual and community-level strategies that can make being physically active easier in the places where people live, learn, work, and play.There are no official fitness guidelines for older adults, but the basic exercises for senior are the same at every age. The average 65-year-old can expect to reach her 85th birthday, and the average 75-year-old will live to age 87. How we’ll celebrate those birthdays — as the life of the party or immobilized on the sidelines — has a lot to do with how we spend our time today.
Take part in at least 2.5 hours of moderateto vigorous-intensity aerobic activity each week. Spread out the activities into sessions of 10 minutes or more. It is beneficial to add muscle and bone strengthening activities using major muscle groups at least twice a week. This will help your posture and balance.
Go for moderate activity, like brisk walking, at least 30 minutes a day, at least 5 days a week. If you’re short on time, vigorous activity, like jogging, gives you the same benefit in 20 minute.
