Discussion: Barriers to Physical Activity and Exercise
According to the American College of Sports and Medicine (ACSM), adults should strive for at least 150 minutes a week of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity and twice a week strength training exercise of all major muscle groups. Do you meet these guidelines? What are some barriers or obstacles for college students in being physically active? Are these barriers internal or external forces? What are solutions to overcome these barriers, be specific.
Reminder – The questions above are to be used to fuel your discussions. You may add more to the conversation as it relates to physical activity. Be sure to submit your original post at least 3 days before the due date for full timeliness points.
