Three days a week. Like Monday, Wensday, and Friday.
They mean it is healthy to exercise 3 times a week.
Yes, they mean three days a week, for a minimum of thirty minutes each time. Good luck to you!
Yes 3 seperate days. you need sleep between workout and preferably a day of recovery time. so every 2 days is the best.

Depending on what you want to do, usually about an hour is enough to stay healthy. And don't just hit the gym all the time, do other stuff like sports to keep it interesting.
Yes, it means you excersize usually MWF or TTHS or to put simply, every other day. The reason for this is that working out every other day will give your muscles time to rest and develop.
Well the "experts" say we should all exercise Mon-Wed-Fri, for 1 hour each time. 3 hours total.

Here is a reality check; who has 1 hour each time to exercise?

AND your body hates 1 hour exercises.

I wake up, exercise for about 10 minutes. At work, during my first break, I exercise for 15 minutes. Lunch; exercise for 20 minutes. 2nd break; exercise for another 15 minutes. And before I go to bed, I exercise again for 10 times. I do this 5 days a week, Mon-Fri.

This works around MY LIFE and time. My body does not scream in pain afterwards. And it works VERY WELL.

It really means get your heart rate elevated moderately for at least 30-45 minutes at a time, three days a week. Yeah, most people do it every other day. But the idea is, three times in a seven day period you should have had significant exercise.
Make it fun, don't go the the gym take dancing lessons instead - anything from tap to modern dance.
How hard is this to understand. It means to exercise three days a week, i..e., incorporate exercise into your daily life at LEAST three days a week. How much plainer can this be!
They meant to have an exercise session 3 days a week. This session should be at least 20 or 30 minutes long, but can be much longer depending on how much you need to exercise. This can be a walk around your neighborhood, an aerobics class, pretty much any kind of physical activity that gets your heartrate up.
it means be atleast psychically active for 3 days a week
