In the past, what was recommended for exercise was thirty minutes of physical fitness activity (moderate intensity) for the majority of the days of the week. Currently, the weekly recommendation for physical activity (for individuals aged 18 to 65) is two and a half hours of cardio (moderate intensity) in addition to muscle strengthening (such as resistance training or weight lifting) on two or more days. Exercise and mixed exercise (aerobic and resistance) are more effective than aerobic exercise alone in reducing patient-perceived symptoms of depression.
Although walking is known as the most frequent form of physical activity recommended by health care professionals, mixed exercise (aerobic and resistance) is more effective than aerobic exercise alone in reducing patient-perceived symptoms of depression. In health care settings, advice from a medical professional has the potential to lead to short-term (less than 12 weeks) increases in physical activity. However, referrals to exercise specialists can lead to long-term (up to eight months) change in both health care and community settings.
