How often and how many sets of each exercise depends on your level of fitness. It’s important to go at your own pace, but to exercise enough to make a difference. Work your way to two or three sets of each exercise two to three times per week, with days of rest in between.
Spodobalski says it is also effective to climb stairs, power walk and jog, and perform plyometric exercises, like good old-fashioned jump roping.
