2. How Long to Exercise

Every person will exercise for different lengths of time because this is entirely dependent on overall fitness. Initially, the average person should aim for three to five sets of 10 repetitions, taking a one-minute break between each set. If this proves too difficult, feel free to reduce the number of sets or repetitions. More athletic individuals can perform more repetitions to further improve muscle endurance. Alternatively, they may wish to try some modifications of the Russian twist.
