Exercise Intensity

Exercise Intensity

How can you determine the intensity of your workout? Take the talk test. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, if you can comfortably carry on a conversation while exercising, you are working out at a moderate intensity level. If you want to pick it up to a vigorous pace, the test is that you're too out of breath to talk. (If you can sing while working out, your intensity level is light.)
