Like how many set-ups, push-ups, jogging should people do daily to keep their bodies in shapes?

do you just want to maintain your present weight? add muscle, or what?

My present weight = 150. I'm not muscular, but I'm in shape. I pretty much want to maintain my weight and still have a flat stomach.

Id stick with cardio then, a couple to three times at the track a week should be enough if you just want to maintain. a few sets of push-ups and sit-ups on non-track days will help as well.

Seriously, you should be checking with your doctor. He/She will make sure there are no restrictions or precautions you need to be aware of.

It's really about intensity more than duration or repetition. E.g. if you run, run hills. You'll know it when you do it.

47, 32 and then 1.732 miles at the bare minimum.



Hell, I don't know. No one has an exact number for these things. Push yourself hard and then next time push yourself a little harder and you'll figure it out.

Exercise shouldn't just be performed to stay in shape. There are so many other reasons to do it, your health being the most important. IMHO, a person should be exercising 60 minutes daily. Human beings were meant to move and too many of us sit at desks all day. Even if you're in perfect shape, you should be doing something every day. Any exercise plan should include both cardio and resistance training. The 3X per week stuff the experts recommend is a joke. They just say that cause they know most people are too lazy to exercise daily. I run every morning and feel fantastic. I also lift weights 3 times a week. I'm in better shape and better health in my 30s than I ever was in my 20s. But just remember that the best exercise plan means nothing with a proper diet.
