An Average Man Should, And Needs To Exercise

An average man should, and needs, to exercise at least three times a week for a minimum of 30 minutes.  As I have said before, we have many options when it comes to exercise.  In my opinion, if you have the time and especially if you’re retired, you should do some exercise everyday. Doing a bit of exercise everyday is better than doing none at all since it all helps to keep our muscles flexible and strong, and is great for mental fatigue, and your mindset in general.
