Extreme Workouts: When Exercise Does More Harm than Good. When it comes to exercise, a Goldilocks approach is probably best: too little isn't good for heart, but neither is too much. Moderate physical activity — anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour a day, several days a week — is just right. Time Healthland. 06/04/12. (Also see: Heart Involvement)
