    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    If you did more exercises, you would be a student practising your English, or something similar.

    It's example sentences you want, is it? :wink:

    Try:
    • You need more exercise.
      You need to get more exercise.
      You should get more exercise.
      Have you been getting your exercise?
      I exercise every morning.
      I exercise every day.
      What do you think about exercise?
      I've had enough exercise.
      What kind of exercise do you like?
      I like strenuous exercise.


    :)
