14 POP FITT Quiz 14 What is the minimum amount of aerobic exercise necessary to get the most benefit from your Program? 120 minutes per week 150 minutes per week 180 minutes per week 240 minutes per week

18 The Benefits of Getting Stronger Increases lean body mass Improves bone health Improves glucose tolerance and insulin function Improves muscle, tendon and ligament integrity Helps you maintain independence and activities of daily living 18

20 Effects of Not Exercising Without exercise, cardiorespiratory fitness decreases as quickly as 2 weeks.
