Brief Answer:
It's more than sufficient.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for writing to XXXXXXX

I personally feel that your level of physical activity is more than just sufficient for any form of cause or reason.

The AHA (American heart association) guidelines for physical activity in Adults recommends -
atleast 30 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity (like brisk walk) at least 5 days per week or
at least 25 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity (like jogging) at least 3 days per week AND
Moderate to high intensity muscle-strengthening activity at least 2 or more days per week for additional health benefits.

Hope I have addressed your query. Happy to help further
